Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):

I do not rise to

oppose the motion, but to ask my right hon. friend if he will allow it to stand until Friday? The reason I make the suggestion is that I know there are a number of hon. members who would like to speak on the resolution of the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Woodsworth) and who have not yet had opportunity so to do. It is possible that that opportunity may be accorded to-morrow, in which event, as far as the Liberal opposition is concerned, we will be quite agreeable to having this motion carried. But, if that opportunity should not present itself tomorrow I would ask my right hon. friend.to permit us to have Monday of next week for that purpose.

I shall be glad to let the motion stand until Friday. The motion need not now be put, Mr. Speaker. But I point out that Monday would not be a day on which that motion could be further discussed.
