Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

To-morrow the Finance Minister proposes to go on with some of his budget resolutions. I think it is probable that we shall also take up one or two of the bills and resolutions that still stand under Government Orders. There are not many of them, but such as there are will be taken up. I am glad to be able to inform hon. members that we

have completed the passing of the main estimates. Of course, there will still be some supplementary estimates, but I think it will be a source of satisfaction to hon. members to know that we have got that far. May I take advantage of this moment to congratulate my right hon. friend the leader of the Opposition on having attained his forty-eighth birthday, and to wish him many happy returns?
