Mr. Lewis:

Mr. Speaker, the hon. minister obviously did not understand me, though I thought I made myself clear. It is my understanding that when a debate is adjourned the matter becomes a government order. What I am proposing is that we will give up our opposition day, not only give up tomorrow but give up one of our opposition days so that we are left with one rather than two, if the minister will agree that he, as Acting government House Leader, will bring forward that motion which is now a government order.

Mr. Macdonald (Rosedale):

Mr. Speaker, if the House is prepared to make an order this evening to reduce the number of outstanding allotted days by one, as the hon. member has suggested, that is for the balance of this part of the session, I will be quite agreeable to bringing forward the order standing in the name of my friend from Fraser Valley. If we are in agreement on the reduction of the number of allotted days by one in this case, I will be quite agreeable to calling that as the first order of business under government orders tomorrow.

Mr. Lewis:

Mr. Speaker, that was clearly what I suggested, though I did not put it quite the way the minister does because if that debate ends at two o'clock or three o'clock tomorrow, then it is possible to spend an hour or two on the motion that we now have on the order paper. I am,

and my colleagues are, anxious to have that matter debated rather than adjourned until next week. If the greed of the Acting House Leader is such that he will not agree unless we now make an order that we lose the entire day, then he can have it and I hope he gets indigestion as a result of his greed.

Mr. Speaker, we are prepared to agree to that rather magnanimous offer of the New Democratic Party. We would, of course, have done the same thing had we not-

Mr. Nielsen:

We do so on the understanding that it will not only be the motion that is now standing as a government order that will be debated tomorrow, but as well the amendment that was proposed from this side of the House.

Mr. Speaker, we agree with the proposal made by the leader of the New Democratic Party (Mr. Lewis) and we respect it, but we would like to have the same opportunity to dispose as we wish of our opposition days.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I believe there is obvious unanimity on this point. The understanding is that the motion which presently stands in the name of the hon. member for Fraser Valley East (Mr. Pringle), and of course the amendment thereto which by the Standing Orders will tomorrow become government orders, would be the first order of business. It is also understood that if this matter is disposed of before the end of the day, the next order of business would be the motion which now stands in the name of one of the representatives of the New Democratic Party. Is this understood and agreed?

Of course, as the hon. Acting Government House Leader says, this would be deemed to be the supply day assigned to the New Democratic Party.
