I have had the honour of a seat in this House which I have ever made, with the whip on the other side has been fulfilled to the letter. As evidence of that, I might mention that there never has been any controversy between us, and never until this time any reference in the press to any breach of agreement. It is only fair that I should make this statement. The reason why the debate dropped Vas in my opinion because neither party seemed to have any special desire to continue it. Had there been any agreement by which one speaker would speak on our side and then another on the government side and we had taken any advantage of that, I would have been guilty and so would hon. members on this side, but the gentlemen who intended to continue the debate on the government side were all in their seats when the debate ceased and I myself saw the right hon. the Prime Minister rise partially in his place and look around, first at the Speaker and then at the hon. member for Carleton (Mr. Carvell) who was expected to take part in the debate. The Speaker rose, read the resolution, and the resolution was put to the vote. I think it is not only fair to myself but to the members of the opposition that I should make this statement. I wish to repeat that any agreement I have ever had with the whips on the other side has been fulfilled to the letter. I think this is in the interest of the dignity of the House that one side should keep faith with the other and respect agreements.
