Mr. Speaker, I am seeking some clarification about the government's intentions with respect to passage of the budget bills.
We want to know if the government is willing to say that it wants the budget bills passed through both Houses by the end of this parliamentary sitting, even if it means working into the summer. Canadians do not want this dragged over to the fall. That would be a betrayal to all in the country.
Will the government join with us in saying that there will be no summer break until the budget bills are passed by Parliament?
