Mr. Sfarr:

Mr. Chairman, my suggestion makes a great deal of sense. The suggestion made by the house leader of the N.D.P. will not achieve the purpose he tries to make us believe it will achieve. There are quite a number of departments left to be considered. We will not be meeting tomorrow until 2.30 p.m., and by the time orders of the day and other matters are disposed of we will only have a short period of time to consider the remaining departments. We may or may not finish them by six o'clock, so there will be no opportunity for the other place to consider these estimates. If we completed these estimates and interim supply tonight the other

place would have the whole afternoon to deal with them, and we could have royal assent at six o'clock. Surely that makes good sense.
