Mr. J. A. McGrath (St. John's East):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege affecting most of the hon. members of this house. Today is St. Patrick's day, Mr. Speaker, and it is appropriate that on this St. Patrick's day we welcome back to this house from the commonwealth prime ministers' conference and his history making visit to Ireland our distinguished Prime Minister, the first Canadian prime minister to visit the land that gave Canada Thomas D'Arcy McGee.
On behalf of all Irishmen in this house and those hon. members who wish they were, and on behalf of all Irishmen throughout the length and breadth of this country, I wish you, sir, the top o' the morning. May I voice the age-old cry of Irish exiles and Irish patriots everywhere and say "Erin go bragh".
