December 21, 1951 (21st Parliament, 5th Session)


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


Mr. Fournier (Hull):

May I make this remark. If it be true that we have been discussing the principle of the bill, the amendment and the subamendment would it not be logical that we vote on those three things at the same time? Before announcing the business of the house for December 27, I want to extend to every member my best wishes for a merry Christmas and a safe return to Bill No. 36, an act to amend the Combines Investigation Act, which will be the first item of business on that day. Then, if it is disposed of, we shall take up the government notice of motion in the name of the Secretary of State for External Affairs, and then all the other bills remaining on the order paper.
