Liberal

Mr. St. Laurent:

If there is any challenge to a vote at this time the government is quite prepared to have it recorded; but if the attitude is that we do not want to quarrel, and that we all want to arrive at the best possible method of considering these matters, it might be agreeable to suggest that we defer a decision upon this motion until I ask to have it called again. If that is not agreeable, I am quite prepared to go on with it. But if it is agreeable, I am prepared to have it deferred to be called again either on Tuesday or Wednesday, because I think hon. members will come to the conclusion, after having con-

sidered the matter, that they would not then have the same objection to three sittings a day.
