SENATE DEBATES — November 26, 1980

[Page 1325]



Hon. Richard A. Donahoe: Honourable senators, before we rise, may I make an announcement?

The Standing Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs was called to meet on the rising of the sitting of the Senate this afternoon. That meeting has now been cancelled.

A number of witnesses were summoned to appear before the committee. They have been discharged, and asked to return at 9.30 tomorrow morning. The committee will meet tomorrow morning at 9.30.

I make this announcement for the benefit of members ofthe committee.

Hon. Royce Frith (Deputy Leader of the Government): The committee does not need permission to meet because the Senate is not sitting at that time. I hope honourable senators have taken note of that announcement.

Incidentally, that is connected with the point raised by Senator Smith yesterday. I understand that a number of committees will be sitting tomorrow, but the Senate itself will not be sitting.
