Mr. KNOWLES:

-to find out whether arrangements can be made for the committee to sit between sessions of this parliament, bearing in mind that the period between sessions will not be a recess. I suggest to the government that even if the committee is to make an exhaustive survey of only one or two items-which is all it can do-it will hardly be possible for it to do that while the house is in session, particularly in view of the fact that there is not much time between now and Christmas, or whenever the house rises. I hope that this matter will be taken into consideration and that some way may be found whereby this committee may be enabled to sit between sessions so that it will have the freedom that it can have at such a time to do the exhaustive work on one or two items that it might undertake.
