Mr. Speaker, the hon. member across is a little impatient with his future holidays. He will probably have to wait some time.
This afternoon we will continue to debate second reading of Bill C-48, the natural resources taxation bill. I understand that the bill is nearing completion.
When it is complete, we will then debate Bill C-50, the veterans' benefits bill sponsored by my colleague, the Minister of Veterans Affairs, followed by the consideration of the Senate amendments to Bill C-10B, the cruelty to animal bill.
In the unlikely event that we do not complete all of that this afternoon, on Friday we would begin with a reference to committee before second reading of Bill C-41, the amendments and corrections bill. The opposition House leader and I have had a brief conversation about this
We would then proceed with Bill C-37, respecting improvements to Canadian Forces pension benefits.
We will then return to any bills already mentioned today in the unlikely event that some of them are not fully completed.
On Monday, we would begin with Bill C-17, the public safety bill, and then return to the list previously described.
Tuesday, September 30, and Thursday, October 2, shall both be allotted days.
