Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

The very unusual and kindly act of the right hon. the leader of the opposition I shall not soon forget. Through you, Mr. Speaker, I should like to thank him for having thought of so gracious an act as that which he has just now done and, more, for the felicitous terms in which he has expressed it. I have had a very interesting and very hardworking life; I have enjoyed the one and gained much experience from the other.
