Mr. Speaker, since this is the first time my hon. colleague has made the standard Thursday enquiry as House leader for the Bloc Quebecois, may I take this opportunity to congratulate her on her new duties.
Tomorrow will be the last day of debate on the budget.
When the House resumes after Easter, as soon as is procedurally possible it will be asked to deal with the three or four bills emanating from the budget.
In addition it would be helpful if I reiterate for the House the other items that will be given high priority: Bill C-82, the financial institutions legislation; Bill C-44, the courts; Bill C-32, the copyright amendment; Bill C-17, Bill C-27 and Bill C-46 which amend the Criminal Code; Bill C-5 representing bankruptcy; Bill C-65, the environment bill; Bill C-79; Bill C-55, the high risk offenders legislation; Bill C-66, the Canada Labour Code amendment; Bill C-38, the farm debt bill; Bills C-39 and C-40 which relate to flooding agreements; Bill C-49, the administrative tribunals bill; Bill C-67, the competition legislation; Bill C-72, the Canadian Wheat Board Act amendments; Bill C-81 respecting the Canada-Chile free trade agreement; Bill C-84 respecting citizenship; Bill C-86 respecting transportation acts; and Bill C-89 regarding powers of customs officers.
There is a lot of work to be done when we come back. I wish everybody a happy Easter so that we can come back in health to work hard.
