April 9, 1951 (21st Parliament, 4th Session)


Alphonse Fournier (Minister of Public Works; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Liberal Party House Leader)


Mr. Fournier (Hull):

Tomorrow we wish to proceed with those two government notices of motions setting up the committees mentioned by them. I understand that some members are anxious that those committees should start their studies. Then we shall move to go into supply, or continue debate on this motion we have been discussing all day, with the amendment of the leader of the opposition

(Mr. Drew), hoping that we will get a vote before six o'clock. At eight o'clock the Minister of Finance (Mr. Abbott) will present his budget. Then the debate on the budget will be adjourned, I understand, for some time. We could then take up Bills No. 191 and No. 192 that are on the order paper.
