THE DEPUTY SPEAKER

ELECTION OF MR. WILLIAM DUFF QUEF.NS-LUNENBURG

LIB

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

Liberal

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

Mr. Speaker, may I be

permitted to join my congratulations to those of other hon. members upon Your Honour's re-election as Speaker of this House, a choice-which was received1, as was to have been expected, with' most gratifying unanimity.

As Your Honour is aware, rule 13 of the House provides that at the commencement of every parliament, as soon as an Address has been agreed to in answer tc His Excellency's Speech, a chairman of committees of the House shall ibe elected who Shall serve as Deputy Speaker. I have no doubt that after a continuous, and-may I add?- exemplary, uninterrupted occupancy of the Speaker's chair for a period of seven weeks, during which time the debate on the Address has been carried on, Your Honour will look not without favour upon the exercise by the House of the power given it under this rule.

I hope that the name I am about, to propose as that of chairman of committees may also be cordially received by bon. members in all parts of the House.

Supply-Customs

The hon. member for Queens-Lunenburg (Mr. Duff) h'as had an experience in this House of some nine years. As hon. members who sat with him in the last and the preceding 'parliaments will know, he possesses the many qualifications which eminently fit him to serve in the important capacity of Chairman of Committees and Deputy Speaker. In the discharge of the important duties of this joint office he will bring a knowledge of the rules acquired1 by dareful observation and study and in no small measure by practical experience; he will bring not less a disposition to foe fearless and impartial in the exercise of an authority which in its character is essentially judicial.

I have therefore great pleasure in moving, seconded- by Mr. Lapointe,

That William Duff, Esquire, member for the electoral district of Queens-Lunenbitrg, be appointed chairman of the committees of the whole House.
