Hon. Donald S. Macdonald (President of the Privy Council):
Mr. Speaker, I would agree with the hon. member. One purpose in announcing the business of the House a week ahead is so that members of the House generally can make arrangements of this kind. I had hoped that the Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs might have noted the fact that these bills were being called for today and would have arranged their business accordingly. If I may address myself to the members of that committee perhaps they might decide not to sit this afternoon as planned so that we can proceed with the debate on the two items which have been called for today.
