LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister) :

Mr. Speaker, Rule 13 of the House provides that a Chairman of Committees shall be elected at the commencement of every Parliament as soon as the Address has been agreed to in answer to His Excellency's Speech. I beg, therefore, to move:

That Mr. George Newcombe Gordon, K.C., member for the electoral district of Peterborough West, be appointe-d Chairman of the Committees of the Whole House.

The hon. member for Peterborough West (Mr. Gordon) was a member of the last Parliament. Although he was not present for the enire Parliament, he quickly acquainted himself with the rules and procedure of the House, and I think that all hon. members who have had the pleasure of knowing him will agree that he possesses

the ability, temperament and attainments necessary for the discharge of the responsible duties of this important office. I hope, therefore, that the House will support this motion.
