Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):

Before the -orders of the day are proceeded! with I should like to ask the Minister of Finance (Mr. Dunning) if it is likely that the trade agreement between the United) Kingdom and Canada will be laid upon the table before the budget is presented, and also if he is in a position to give us any indication as to when we may expect the budget in the event of the trade agreement not being presented- before the budget is brought down.
Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Finance): It is a little early to determine that. The trade agreement has not yet been finally completed. I shall endeavouf to give the house as soon as possible information as to the time of presentation of the budget and also with respect to the trade agreement.
