Mr. MARCIL:

If the House does not sit, at night there is no reason why the committees should not meet earlier in the morning, or why the business of the House should not be transacted between two and six in the afternoon. Experience has shown that the afternoon sittings are the ones at which most business is done, and if the evening sittings were cuit out the committees could meet at nine-thirty or ten in the morning, and get through by twelve or half-past, and the House could meet at two and go on till six or even seven, if necessary.
Motion amended as proposed, agreed to.

Topic:   SITTINGS AT TWO O'CLOCK.
