Mr. SPROULE.

This report has been before the House since Friday. On Saturday we sat all day, and the same yesterday. So, it is very hard to keep up with every portion of the work. Consequently I for one, have had no opportunity to see the report. 1 do not know whether the observations made by the hon. member (Mr. Douglas) were the result of the deliberations of the committee or not. If they were it seems to me they were improper. I think this should be allowed to remain over to another day to give us an opportunity to examine it. Surely there can be no such urgent demand for forcing it through. Saturday is an unusual day for the sitting of the House, so that this is pressing the matter through at practically one day's notice To allow it to remain for another day will not prevent the work being done, and will be quite in keeping with the needs of the House and of the country.
