Before calling orders of the day yesterday I referred to the problem of the application during this session of certain amended orders which were passed in the last session, I suggested at the time that hon. members might want to submit arguments in this respect today so that the matter might be settled.
However, I understand there have been discussions since then, and in view of the fact that today is also a very special day, it being what is commonly known as "Leaders' Day", it might be advisable once more not to see the clock and also to suspend the operation of the amended standing order regarding sitting during the dinner hour. So if this is agreeable to hon. members we will proceed today on this basis.
