REQUEST FOR CONSIDERATION OF AUDITOR


On the orders of the day:


PC

Robert Lorne Stanfield (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Robert L. Stanfield (Leader of the Opposition):

I have a question for the President of the Privy Council, Mr. Speaker, in his capacity as government house leader. In view of the fact the last two reports of the Auditor General have not been fully considered by the public accounts committee, and a further report of the Auditor General is expected in January of next year, will the house leader proceed as rapidly as possible with arrangements for the organization of the committee

on public accounts and reference to that committee of the reports of the Auditor General which have not been fully considered?

Hon. Donald S. Macdonald (President of the Privy Council):

It was our hope that both Bill No. C-113 and the bill with regard to farm credit might have been passed by last night; in fact that was the proposal we made to hon. gentlemen opposite. I feel we should proceed with today's order of business as called and dispose of the Post Office Act as early as possible and dispose of all stages of the farm credit bill as early as possible. Then I am sure the hon. member will be eager to facilitate that procedure as well as the bill to which he referred.
