Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, I beg leave to move:
That William Alfred Robinson, Esquire, member for the electoral district of Simcoe East, Ontario, be appointed deputy chairman of committees of the whole house.
I am confident that members of the house, especially those who have been members of committees presided over by the hon. gentleman, will feel, as I do, that he will carry out the duties of deputy chairman of the committees of the whole house in the same able and impartial way as he has presided over some of the standing or select committees of the house.
