Hon. R. J. MANION (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to
offer my hearty congratulations to the two hon. gentlemen who have been admitted to the King's Privy Council for Canada. I have not the honour of knowing at all well the hon. gentleman who has been made Postmaster General (Mr. McLarty). I know a good deal more of the hon. gentleman who has been appointed minister without portfolio (Mr. MacKinnon). I am sure that so far as within them lies they will do very good work as members of the government, and I heartily congratulate them and wish them well.
I am very sorry that Mr. Elliott's health makes it impossible for him to carry on his heavy duties as minister, and I wish him a full recovery to health.
