Mr. St. Laurent:
Mr. Speaker, I move that the house do now adjourn until three o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
In view of the fact that under the standing orders there is only one sitting of the house
Business of the House
on Wednesdays, and the further fact that, in accordance with the motion adopted a few minutes ago, the business tomorrow will be the consideration of His Excellency's speech to both houses of parliament, I suggest that after the motion for an address to His Excellency is made and seconded, we adjourn until Thursday, at which time, in accordance with tradition, the leader of the opposition (Mr. Drew) will be the first to be recognized; I might follow, and then the other leaders, in the order that has become traditional in this house.
Motion agreed to and the house adjourned at 4 p.m.
