Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
In view of the applause which
greeted the announcement made by the Minister of Finance that he would bring down his budget tonight at eight o'clock, I trust I shall have unanimous consent of the house when I move:
That standing order 15 in relation to the consideration of private and public bills on Tuesdays be suspended for the sitting of Tuesday. April 10, 1951, so that the order for the house to resolve itself into committee of ways and means (budget) may be proceeded with at eight o'clock p.m.
Subtopic: SUSPENSION FOR THIS DAY'S SITTING OF STANDING ORDER 15 IN RELATION TO PRIVATE AND PUBLIC BILLS
