Liberal

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, before the doors of the house were opened to the public you led us in the usual prayer for our beloved sovereign, Queen Elizabeth. Today the people of Canada are celebrating officially the anniversary of Her Majesty's birthday. In this house, as in other years, we will be evidencing our devotion to Her Majesty by continuing to give consideration to the public business of her Canadian subjects. But with your permission the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Drew) and I would like to suggest that before doing so we stand and sing together the first verse of the royal anthem.

Whereupon the members of the house rose and sang

God Save the Queen.
