May 10, 1911 (11th Parliament, 3rd Session)


Robert Laird Borden (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BORDEN (Halifax).

1 think the Prime Minister is right in his understanding of what the general programme is to be. We are to give one-fourth, or three months' supply to September i. But between now and the day of adjournment we are to go on with Supply, and with the business of the House as usual. I quite agree with that understanding. So far as the business to-night is concerned, there may be a little misapprehension-not between the Prime Minister and myself, but between myself and my hon. friends on this side-who thought that other items were to be taken up. I do not think that the hon. member from North Toronto (Air. Foster), expected that the items of trade and commerce would be taken up to-night. However, we might do something at it, for a while anyway.

Topic:   SUPPLY.
