Mr. Churchill:

Mr. Speaker, tomorrow we will commence with third reading of Bill No. C-73, an act to amend the Income Tax Act and follow then with the estimates of the Department of Agriculture.

The forecast for next week subject to change is as follows: Monday and Tuesday a supply motion; Wednesday, interim supply and if concluded, supplementary estimates. On Thursday we will commence with No. 8 on today's order paper which is a resolution in the name of the Minister of Agriculture dealing with agricultural development. Following, on Thursday and Friday, we will have the estimates of the Department of Agriculture.

The remaining three days prior to the Easter recess will be available for the completion of supplementary estimates and such other business as the house sees fit to bring forward.

Mr. Chevrier:

Mr. Speaker, should we finish agriculture on Thursday or on Friday-I doubt if it can be finished Thursday-what other business would we take up?

We would very likely in that event consider the post office estimates.
