UNEMPLOYMENT AND FARM RELIEF

CONTINUANCE ACT, 1932-NOTICE OF MOTION FOR CLOSURE

Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister) :

Mr. Speaker, I beg to give notice to

the house that at the next sitting I will move that the debate on item number 13 of the orders of the day, that Mr. Speaker leave the chair, and the previous question moved thereupon shall not be further adjourned.

This discussion has been carried on at great length. I think sometimes the time of parliament is wasted, and we on this side are as much to blame as -those on the other side, sometimes perhaps more. But I do not believe that this discussion has been a waste of time. I believe that the people of Canada, when they are thoroughly seized of the importance of this particular resolution and of the bill to be founded upon it, will justify us in what we are doing. I would say this further, and I am speaking for myself alone: I would invite the government, if it feels that we are blocking legislation deliberately and not with the interests of the country at heart, to apply the closure, and we are quite willing to abide by the decision with regard to it.

On Friday last I considered the desirability, in view of the fact that the Easter adjournment was imminent, of giving the notice which I have just read, but I thought that possibly the situation would clarify and it would not be necessary. In view of what has transpired it now becomes essential in the interests of those who are most concerned that such should be done. In view of the fact that the right hon. leader of the opposition (Mr. Mackenzie King)-

Mr. SPEAKER:

The leader of the government and the leader of the opposition are given a certain latitude in matters of this kind. I do not think the remarks have been over-extended on this occasion.

Mr. BENNETT:

I was going to say when I was interrupted .that inasmuch as the right hon. the leader of the opposition had expressed so great a desire to expedite the passing of legislation which would assist those who are greatly in need, and inasmuch as we propose to proceed with closure on Tuesday next

Questions

when the house meets, it might be that in his great anxiety he will expedite the application this afternoon of the motion for closure and permit the passing of the legislation before we adjourn.
