Mr. SPEAKER:

The hon. member was not present; nevertheless the estimates were

Committee to Revise Rules

brought in at a time when, as I understand it, he was within the precincts of the house.

I sat in the house yesterday waiting for an opportunity for these estimates to be called. I did not consult with the Minister of Mines and Resources, who was leading the house, nor did I consult or discuss with anyone as to the time when these estimates should be brought in. I quite admit that I indicated my desire to have these estimates brought in, but the hon. member for Simcoe East was in the house all evening. It may have been that at the moment these estimates were called he was not present-
