Hon. HUGH GUTHRIE (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, may I express the pleasure which we all feel upon seeing my right hon. friend the Prime Minister back in his place in the House of Commons to-day? He has returned in apparent health, strength and vigour, and we are all glad to see him back. During his absence we have done some serious business in this chamber under the genial guidance of the Minister of Finance, but we always like to have the head of the government present during our deliberations.
Could the right hon. gentleman give us some idea as to when he proposes to bring down to this chamber legislation in regard to the Duncan report? I do not ask him to give me the exact date, but if he could give us the approximate date it would satisfy a considerable curiosity on this side of the House.
