THE BUDGET

PRESENTATION ON THURSDAY-SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDER 28

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):

I believe there is a

general expectation on the part of the house and the country that the budget will be brought down to-morrow. The government was anxious before bringing down the budget to conclude the debates on the several agreements which have been under consideration. I am of course not in a position to say whether these debates will be concluded this afternoon, but in any event I assume that if the budget is brought down to-morrow it will be the wish of hon. members not to continue the debate on the budget immediately thereafter. In that event we could resume consideration of any business which is left in an unfinished state. As the rules provide that the Speaker must leave the chair without question being put on Thursdays and Fridays, a motion for the suspension of that

Food and Drags Act

rule to-morrow will be necessary if the Minister of Finance (Mr. Dunning) is to be able to present his budget to the house. With that in mind I move that standing order No. 28 be suspended.

FOOD AND DRUGS ACT AMENDMENT


Hon. J. H. KING (Minister of Pensions and National Health) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 125, to amend the Food and Drugs Act. He said: This is an amendment to the Food and Drugs Act to allow the governor in council to appoint analysts who are not members of the staff of the federal Department of Health and allow them to be described as Dominion analysts. This request has come from cities and larger municipalities which have equipped laboratories and are desirous of having their analysts designated as Dominion analysts. The provision is: -upon the request of any province, city or other municipality any duly qualified analyst then and for such time as the said analyst shall remain so employed by the said province, city or other municipality. Such persons can be designated under this act as Dominion analysts. Motion agreed to and bill read the first and second times.
