THE DEPUTY SPEAKER

ELECTION OF HON. RAYMOND MORAND, M.D., MEMBER FOR EAST ESSEX

?

Right Hon. S@

Mr. Speaker, owing

to the unfortunate death of Mr. LaVergne last week, the office of Chairman of Committees is now vacant. This office carries with it the duties of Deputy Speaker. I move:

That the Hon. Raymond Morand, M.D., member for the electoral district of East Essex, Ontario, be appointed Chairman of the Committees of the whole house.

Sir GEORGE PERLEY:

-a very desirable attribute for the Chairman of the Committee. Doctor Morand is getting to be one of the older members now, as he was first elected in 1925, and I feel sure he will carry out his duties in this office with impartiality and satisfaction to both sides of the house.

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

It will be apparent to Your Honour that as far as it is possible for hon. members on this side to make the motion of my right hon. friend unanimous, we are only too ready so to do. The house generally will regard the nomination of the hon. member for East Essex as a very happy one. He possesses the temperament and other qualities which eminently fit him for the position of Chairman of the Com-

mittees of the house and Deputy Speaker, and I am sure we shall ail have reason to take pride in the manner in which he presides, in his impartiality and his general efficiency.

Mr. E. J. GARLAND (Bow River):

Probably as far as this section of the house is concerned I have been more closely associated with the hon. member for East Essex than most others, especially in connection with the work of the radio committee. I must say that if he can handle the house as elegantly and harmoniously as he handled that committee- as I think he will-no mistake has been made in his appointment. I feel sure that we can offer him our cooperation and congratulations.
