Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

It has been suggested to me by some hon. gentlemen on both sides of the House that it might be more convenient, and would tend to the equal expedition of business, if, instead of arranging foT morning sessions, the House should meet at two o'clock. I am ready to accept that suggestion if it meets with the approval of the House, and therefore, if there is no objection, I would propose the motion on the Order Paper in that amended form:
That on and after Wednesday next, the third day of May, and until the end of the session, this House shall meet each day at two o'clock in the afternoon.

Topic:   SITTINGS AT TWO O'CLOCK.
