DUKE AND DUCHESS OF YORK


On motion of Mr. Mackenzie King for the adjournment of the House.


CON

John Babington Macaulay Baxter

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BAXTER:

May I take the liberty of suggesting that the Prime Minister should move and the leader of the Opposition second a resolution expressing the congratulations of this House to the Duke of York and his bride on the very happy event that has occurred today. It seems1 to me that it would be extremely fitting if that were done.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

to-day, and earlier in the day His Excellency was requested to convey such a message on behalf of the government and people of Canada. I think notwithstanding it would be wholly appropriate, and indeed it is a great pleasure, to act upon the suggestion of my hon. friend and -have a formal expression by this House of what, I am sure, we all sincerely wish, namely that the married life of the Duke and Duchess of York may be a long and happy one. I would therefore move:

Resolved, that this House extends its congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of York on the occasion of their marriage, and that the expression of the best wishes of the Canadian Commons be communicated to Their Rev ii Highnesses by TTis Honour th-.. Speaker.

Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

No words of mine are necessary on seconding the motion. This country not only entertains a feeling of profound devotion to the Empire, but has the highest regard personally, and in every way, for the Royal family. The happy event of to-day may well indeed be followed by a message of congratulation from the House.

Robert Forke

Progressive

Mr. FORKE:

I would like to say a few words in support of this motion. I have had a rather long experience and am perhaps in a better position to express an opinion on the subject than the Prime Minister or the leader of the Opposition. I wish to congratulate His Royal Highness upon the fact that he has taken a Scotch lassie. Should there be any doubts about his happiness they can in view of that fact be dismissed at once. He will have a happy life, but I cannot prophesy as to the length of it. However, I join with my right hon. friends in wishing their Royal Highnesses long life and much happiness.
