Mr. CRERAR:

This is the first day on which the question has appeared on the order paper. I will see if an answer can be provided to-morrow, although I am not sure that it can be.

Question stands.

Mr. CRERAR:

Well, yes. What it means is this, that probably after munitions and supply is through, the Minister of Labour will make his statement; then the Minister of Veterans Affairs, a department in which there is a good deal of interest in the house, can make a statement, possibly followed by.other ministers; and hon. members can note the questions they wish to ask in any of these departments and they can all be considered together. I understand that is the procedure which it is proposed we shall follow.

Mr. CRERAR:

That may be considered. I should think that when the Minister of Labour and the Minister of Veterans Affairs, I do not know in which order, have made their statements, that should be acceptable to the house; and if it is the desire of hon. members to discuss the statement of the Minister of Veterans Affairs, good and well; that can be done. I can assure my hon. friend that there may be worse things than a ministerial parade.
