Robert Laird Borden (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

If any such consummation as that could be brought about, I am sure that no one in the House would welcome it more warmly than I should, because, while very late sessions are trying upon all members of the House, and especially upon those who remain to the end, they
are naturally more trying upon members of the Administration than upon any other members of the House, as my hon. friend from South Renfrew will have realized during the time he was a member of the late Administration. I shall be very glad to consider what he has in mind, and if it should be thought desirable that we should meet earlier in the day, and hold committee meetings in the evenings, as far as I personally am concerned, I shall be very glad to try the experiment.
