David Lewis (Parliamentary Leader of the N.D.P.)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Lewis:

Mr. Chairman, I urge the committee to consider the suggestion of the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre. Obviously we will have to be here tomorrow, as we cannot finish everything tonight. I understand the other place has adjourned until tomorrow. I see no purpose whatever being served by trying to sit until twelve o'clock. There is no reason we cannot get all the business done tomorrow, and since we have to be back in any event I see no purpose in sitting till midnight. There is sense in sitting long enough to complete the department we are now discussing, and any other department, such as the Post Office Department and the Privy Council. We will not agree to sit until midnight.
