Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister) :
Hon. members of the House will regret to learn that His Honour, the Speaker of this House, has just suffered bereavement in the death of his father at the advanced and venerable age of eighty-six years. I express what I know to be the wish of the House when I ask you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, to convey to Hon. Mr. Lemieux the deep sympathy of all its members. It will be the wish of hon. members that their sympathy should also be extended to other members of the late Mr. Lemieux's distinguished family.
