PC

John George Diefenbaker (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. G. Diefenbaker (Leader of the Opposition):

In view of the fact that we are being reduced to a portion of one day for debate of the supply motion, I feel that the voting hour should be postponed to permit full consideration being given, and that an extra hour should be allowed from the time at which the vote would normally be taken. The vote was to be taken at 8.15, and in view of what I have said I think it should be postponed to 9.15. We have gone a long way in order to co-operate, and I feel we should be entitled to that.
