Mr. Speaker, may I crave the indulgence of the House. This morning there was referred to the House from the Senate, Bill No. S-18, an Act to incorporate Aetna Casualty and Surety Company of Canada.

Mr. Speaker, I would have liked to receive unanimous consent, because otherwise this bill will be delayed for three months and it is a very important matter. I am sorry that unanimous consent has not been given.

Hon. G. J. Mcllraiih (President of the Privy Council):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to take advantage of this moment, before moving that the House adjourn, for the purpose of doing something that is particularly delightful for me, that is, to wish all hon. Members of the House a very pleasant summer recess which has been well earned and is, if I may be permitted the licence, much needed. I should like each Member of the House, no matter where he may sit, to return to the pleasant surroundings of his home and his constituency and, in spite of whatever the work ahead of him may be, to have in the meantime a well earned holiday and recess so that he may refresh himself. I hope that Members of the Opposition will do so in a way that will not give them too much energy upon their return to this place, but will at least make them feel very pleased about their return. In the case of Members on this side of the House I hope, of course, that they will be refreshed in a way that will give them much energy for the fray that may lie ahead after the 27th of September.

Hon. Michael Starr (Ontario):

Mr. Speaker, may I take a moment to thank the President of the Privy Council and House Leader for his good wishes. We on this side of the House wish him and all his colleagues in the Government a good rest. I hope they will not be called to Cabinet meetings too soon, and that they will all be given an opportunity to get the cobwebs out of their heads, because the presence of cobwebs has been noticeable in the last few weeks. We promise that when we come back we will endeavour to guide the Government along a path different from that which they have been following in the past few years, a path which will bring prosperity to this country.

Mr. A. B. Patterson (Fraser Valley):

Mr. Speaker, this is an occasion on which we all share the same sentiments. It is not too often that this happens, but this is one of the occasions. We appreciate the kind expression of good wishes from the House Leader and we express to the House Leader and the Members of the Government as well as other Members of this House our sincere wishes for an enjoyable, refreshing holiday. Looking back, I think we can say we have accomplished many things in the past few weeks, and of course will be looking forward to resuming business in the fall.

Mr. Caouette:

Mr. Speaker, I would like to add my voice and that of my group, which is not very large this evening to that of other members who spoke before me, to wish everyone, and especially to you, Mr. Speaker, a happy and restful recess, because you had a thankless and difficult task in maintaining order between the various groups of the house.

Mr. Speaker, you fulfilled your job so admirably that I think we should not refer to political matters or partisanship, but that we must altogether admire the faultless and admirable way in which you presided over the business of the house.

Mr. Speaker, I was listening a moment ago while the President of the Privy Council wished us a happy recess, and I thank him. Indeed, we will have a happy recess, and I know that several members will attend conventions or travel to other countries during the holidays. We will re-assemble on September 27, 1965, that is in three months.

Now, as I said this afternoon, I make the wish that the President of the Privy Council (Mr. Mcllraith) and the various ministers- particularly the Minister of Finance (Mr. Gordon)-will take time out during those

three months to study the proposals of the Social Credit party, in order to give Canada, when the session resumes, an administration that is sound, logical and financially-
