This completes the supplementary estimates of Legislation.
No, let us carry on.
Does the committee wish to proceed to another department?
Does the committee wish to proceed with the supplementary estimates of Treasury Board?
Mr. Chairman, I believe the acting house leader agreed that this department and one other at least be held over until tomorrow.
Does the committee wish to consider the supplementary estimates of the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs?
That was the other department to be left over until tomorrow.
Mr. Chairman, the hon. member says that these departments are to be left over till tomorrow by agreement, but I was not asked to give my agreement to that. I have made the proposition that we carry on and complete all of the supplementary estimates. I agree to that, not to standing over particular estimates.
May I ask the chairman whether public service carried or not?
The Assistanl Deputy Chairman: Yes.
Then I am happy.
Mr. Chairman, the hon. member for Ontario has suggested that since we have only two departments left we deal with them tonight. I wonder whether the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre would feel up to the mark if we dealt with Treasury Board this evening.
Mr. Chairman, we have completed several more departments than we proposed. We have done pretty well and only three are left for tomorrow, two departments plus fisheries, which I think we will deal with when Mr. Speaker is in the chair, by way of a message from the deputy to this Excellency.
I hope that we will find it possible to follow the suggestion of the hon. member for York South. That suggestion, if I understood him correctly, is that we complete supplementary estimates by four o'clock and then devote the time between four and five to the motion for interim supply.
That is agreeable.
The Assisiant Deputy Chairman: Shall I rise, report certain resolutions and request leave to sit again at the next sitting of the house?
Resolutions adopted in committee of supply this day reported and concurred in.
