Mr. MANION:

I was going to suggest that as we have passed a great many items and it is now after eleven o'clock it would be a good idea to call it a day.

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

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

If there is any objection to this item I will agree to its consideration being delayed. However, I have looked over the items pretty carefully and I think that on the whole there is a considerable reduction in the amount. What there is in the way of increases appears to be simply increases that would be permitted by statute. I doubt whether there is any particular point in regard to the estimates that hon. members would wish to discuss before they are passed. They are adopted, I believe, pretty much as a matter of form in this House.

Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

Then they would not take much time to pass when they are next considered. I do not know whether any particular objection is entertained in regard to them or not, but if we get as much done every day as we have done to-day, we will not be here long.

Item stands.

On motion of Mr. Mackenzie King the House adjourned at 11.08 p.m.
