The hon. member for
West York was not in the House at all. He arrived after the motion was being put to engross the Address. The only one at the time entitled to speak for the opposition was the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Stevens), who had been left by myself in charge. He remained until the declaration by the Chair. The hon. member for West York arrived after that. Not being acquainted with the situation or having any instructions from me, he would have no authority to speak for the opposition.
