June 4, 1954 (22nd Parliament, 1st Session)


Walter Edward Harris (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration; Leader of the Government in the House of Commons; Liberal Party House Leader)


Mr. Harris moved

the adjournment of the house.
He said: Mr. Speaker, on Monday we shall take first a resolution which is not yet on the

Business of the House
order paper with respect to the Canadian armed forces. There will be two stages to this resolution, namely the signification of His Excellency's consent and recommendation and then the resolution stage itself. As I understand it, that has been agreed upon in the veterans affairs committee. Then we shall take consideration of the amendment to the bill which came back from the other place with respect to inventions of public servants. I understand this is only a matter of some technical changes in the French version of the bill. Then we shall take the National Harbours Board Act, the Veterans Land Act, the Excise Tax Act, the Excise Act, the Customs Tariff, Income Tax Act and Canadian National Railways. If we complete that business we plan to proceed with disability allowances. We shall take that debate until we reach second reading but not continue with the committee stage. If we still have time we shall take supply beginning with national revenue, followed by fisheries, mines and technical surveys, legislation and privy council.
