Mr. Speaker, we are agreeable to that being done. I shall say nothing more than that having made the case which we set out to make, we are prepared to let the house come to a decision on the issue at this time.
The house resumed consideration of the motion of Mr. Macdonald (Rosedale), and the amendment thereto of Mr. Stanfield.
That when the house adjourns for its summer recess it shall stand adjourned until October 22, 1969, provided always that if it appears to the satisfaction of Mr. Speaker, after consultation with Her Majesty's government, that the public interest requires that the house should meet at an earlier time during the adjournment, Mr. Speaker may give notice that he is so satisfied, and thereupon the house shall meet at the time stated in such notice, and shall transact its business as if it had been duly adjourned to that time; and
That, in the event of Mr. Speaker being unable to act owing to illness or other cause, the Deputy Speaker or the Deputy Chairman of Committees shall act in his stead for the purpose of reconvening the house.
