CCF

Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. COLDWELL:

If the official opposition goes on to-morrow afternoon with the budget debate and the budget debate is adjourned immediately thereafter I agree to the hour
*
from eight to nine being taken, but the original arrangement for to-morrow was that there would be four speakers in th budget debate, although I think four is far too many. However, I think this charter debate should be completed; that to-morrow the leading speaker for the opposition in the budget debate, the hon. member for Muskoka-Ontario (Mr. Mac-donnell) should go on, if he wishes, and that then the budget debate should be adjourned. On that basis I would agree to the hour from eight to nine being taken, but otherwise I would not be disposed to agree.
