Mr. ILSLEY:

The answer to the last question is no. With regard to the other two, I will take the hon. member's suggestions into account and when we reach resolution 25 they can be discussed.
Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury); I had hoped that the lengthy discussion, which has now lasted for over six hours, arising out of the speech of the hon. member for Parry Sound, would have ended some hours ago and that we might have made some progress with this resolution. It is now nearly eleven o'clock, and I would ask the committee on both sides of the chamber if we cannot get
Income War Tax Act

away from this speculative exhibition of monetary theories and get down to business tomorrow so that we may make some real progress in regard to this resolution.
Might I just ask the minister, in view of the flow of eloquence and the multiplicity of words to which we have been listening, not to forget that in the course of my budget speech, in the remarks I made on this resolution, No. 1, I asked certain specific questions which I think are of very great importance and which we would like to have elucidated. I hope he will not forget them to-morrow.
