William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)


Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to express to hon. members the appreciation of my colleagues and myself for their courtesy in continuing to sit all this evening until this hour So as to enable the business of the house to be completed this morning. The business is now complete, and I move:
That when the house adjourns it stand adjourned until 12.15 o'clock p.m., to-day.
I might say that I understand the senate does not resume its sitting until twelve o'clock noon, at which time the supply bill will be considered in the other house. I imagine there will be no delay in its passage there, and I think that if hon. members reassemble here at 12.15 p.m. to receive the bill when it comes back from the other house, that will be the only business to-morrow until the royal assent takes place at 12.30 p.m.
