Mr. GEO. TAYLOR.

Before the Orders of the Day are called, I would like to inquire of the Minister of Agriculture when he purposes bringing down his estimates. I may say that there is a general complaint on this side of the House among those representing agricultural constituencies, that for the last two or three sessions these estimates have been left over until a very late period in the session, and last year they were brought in on Friday night when most of the members were out of the House. This is one of the most important departments in the interest of agriculture, and I think it very unfair that these estimates should be left over to be rushed through at the latter end of the session, without giving an opportunity to discuss them pronerly.
