Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. Yesterday members of all parties in this House gave unanimous consent wherever it was necessary and co-operated thoroughly so that Bill C-17 could be passed through all its stages. Bill C-17 is the bill that extends the Veterans Land Act which otherwise would expire, or at least certain of its provisions would expire, on March 31.
I think it is generally understood that one of the reasons for yesterday's co-operation was so that this bill could be dealt with in the other place, finally passed and given Royal Assent before March 31. I have discovered this morning, Sir, that the Senate adjourned yesterday afternoon until eight o'clock Tuesday evening.
Subtopic: CONSIDERATION BY SENATE OF BILL EXTENDING EXPIRY DEADLINE
