February 23, 1959 (24th Parliament, 2nd Session)

PC

Daniel Roland Michener (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Speaker:

With the request under rule 26 in the amended form, it appears to me this is a matter of urgent public importance of recent origin for which there would be no opportunity of debate until next Monday at the earliest, and therefore it appears to me to come within the rule.
I will read the request of the hon. member for Trinity again:
Mr. Speaker, I ask leave to move the adjournment of the house under standing order 26 for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance, namely the crisis in the aircraft industry involving mass lay-offs and threatened disintegration of this important sector of our Canadian defence production.

Has the hon. member leave of the house to proceed?

Topic:   LABOUR CONDITIONS
Subtopic:   CRISIS IN AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY-MOTION FOR ADJOURNMENT UNDER STANDING ORDER 26
