Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, in accordance with the oral notice given by the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Fournier) last Thursday at the close of the sitting, and as published in Votes and Proceedings for Friday, I move:
That on Monday, April 28. 1952, and every Monday thereafter to the end of the session, government notices of motions and government orders shall have precedence over all business except the introduction of bills, questions by members and notices of motions for the production of papers.
I would hope, however, that it might be understood that there would be allotted today as much time to private members' business as was taken last Monday to deal with the motion to set up the committee on the readjustment of representation.
Subtopic: PRECEDENCE OF GOVERNMENT BUSINESS ON MONDAYS
