Mr. Chevrier:

May I ask-I am looking to the east and I am looking to the west-oh, I see the acting house leader now-for the three days which I presume we will be sitting next week, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, what the business will be?

George Clyde Nowlan (Minister of National Revenue)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Nowlan:

I am only the acting house leader, so I would not want to exceed my terms of authority, which run only until Monday when the house leader will be back. During Monday, we will continue to deal with the supplementary estimates and the bill, of course, ensuing therefrom. Then, we would take up item No. 12 on today's order paper, which is a resolution on redistribution standing in the name of the Prime Minister. These two are firm, Mr. Speaker. We will deal with supplementary estimates first and then we will take up item No. 12. I do not want, at the moment, to commit myself definitely to the order for the rest of the day, but I would expect that we would then deal with No. 2, a bill dealing with an amendment to the British North America Act; then item No. 14, which is a resolution dealing with a charge on the consolidated revenue fund for the payment of a lifetime annuity to those who may be retiring under the bill which I have just

mentioned. It may be that, at the same time, we may deal with item No. 1 on the order paper today, an amendment to the Customs Act.

As I said, I do not want to commit myself about the order of the latter three, although the first two are firm, namely the supplementary estimates and then the bill with respect to redistribution.
