Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I am glad my hon. friend has raised the point. Of course, I shall have to place myself in the hands of the House in this matter. I noticed in looking over the records that the resolution did appear as my hon. friend ha3 said, but I immediately drew the attention of the Clerk to the circumstance that the amendment that I had proposed was in-

tended to mean on and after Monday. The words "on and" were omitted in the printing. I think every hon. member who heard me speak here-and I think Hansard will bear it out-understood that the Government would desire to take Monday next* for its business. The Government would like to hold to this, but we are agreeable to making an exception with respect to the one motion I have spoken of. If hon. gentlemen did not so understand me, I am prepared to consider the matter further, but I think it is desirable to get on with the main business of the House as rapidly as possible.
