Mr. JOSEPH ARCHAMBAULT (Chambly and Vercheres):

I had given notice that I would move to-day concurrence in the second report of the select standing committee on Privileges and Elections and it was my intention to do so. The hon. member for West Hastings (Mr. Porter) however, has telephoned me that he is ill. It would be repugnant to me to do anything that would inconvenience the hon. member, who throughout the proceedings has shown every courtesy to the Chair. At the same time the hon. member and the House will realize that the hon. the Minister of Labour (Mr. Murdock) is most anxious to resume his seat and this delay is causing him great inconvenience. I have therefore arranged with the hon. member for West Hastings to proceed on Wednesday, the 25th instant, and I now give notice that on that day I shall make the motion which I intended to move to-day.

Topic:   HON. MR. MURDOCK AND HOME BANK
