Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):
I gather from
what the right bon. Prime Minister has just said that the government intends to drop the controversial measure, the elections bill, because he refers to only one other measure, that not being controversial. If that is the case it will materially shorten the session and insure speedier prorogation. Also, if the committee dealing with the grain- bill- has still to confer and reach a conclusion -with regard to its provisions possibly the time of all hon. members would be spent more profitably if that committee continued its work and the rest of us looked- on over th-e period of July first. Once that bill is settled I believe I can say on behalf of the opposition that provided the bill I -referred to w-ith respect to thie elections act is withdrawn, the rest of the order paper will not take many hours to conclude.
