March 26, 1968

Mr. Starr:

Mr. Chairman, I hope there is some disposition on the part of the committee to accept the suggestion I wish to make. If it meets with the approval of the committee perhaps we can sit until twelve o'clock, on the understanding that we will pass all the supplementary estimates this evening. In view of the fact that we have now discussed the supplementary estimates for a number of days, and in view of the fact that these items are similar to items on interim supply, perhaps we could agree to also pass interim supply before twelve o'clock.

Mr. Starr:

Mr. Chairman, the hon. member says that these departments are to be left over till tomorrow by agreement, but I was not asked to give my agreement to that. I have made the proposition that we carry on and complete all of the supplementary estimates. I agree to that, not to standing over particular estimates.

Mr. Starr:

A supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. Is the commission, to the right hon. gentleman's knowledge, going to hold any open hearings, or is it going to hear witnesses only, so to speak, under wraps?

Mr. Starr:

No, Mr. Chairman, I do not think that suggestion makes any sense at all. I am suggesting that we sit an hour and 45 minutes tonight. We sat until after eleven o'clock yesterday to complete the estimates of one department. I am suggesting that we sit an hour and 45 minutes tonight and complete interim supply for all departments.

We talk about reforming the Senate, and in the same breath say that one hour is enough time for them to consider supplementary estimates and interim supply for two months, when we have spent 10 or 11 days here considering the supplementary estimates. I do not think that is fair to the Senate. No wonder people look at the Senate and say it should be reformed. Let us give them an opportunity to discuss these matters all afternoon. We should give them an opportunity for fair discussion. Then we could have royal assent at six o'clock, or whatever the time is.
