Mr. J. J. DENIS (Joliette):

Mr. Speaker, before the business of the House is proceeded with, I wish to rise to a point of order, which I may formulate as follows:
This House is not in order when it does now sit at this hour of the day, but can only be in order when it sits this afternoon at 3 p.m., such hour being based upon the standard time which was in effect when the House adjourned last Friday night.
If I am in order, I shall now proceed to demonstrate that it is now, not three o'clock, but two o'clock.

Topic:   DAYLIGHT SAVING-SITTINGS OF THE HOUSE.
Subtopic:   POINT OP ORDER RAISED BY MR. J. J.
