Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct the attention of the Prime Minister and of the house to the concluding sentence of the statement made by Your Houour on the twenty-fifth of July, as reported in Hansard at page 4701. That sentence reads:
I shall therefore await the order of the house Before issuing a new writ for a new election for the electoral district of Stanstead.
The Prime Minister will recall the incident. I do not think we should disperse for the recess without consideration of this matter, and I therefore desire to ask the Prime Minister if the question has received the attention of the government and if he is prepared to present any motion to the house with regard thereto.
