Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I think, Mr. Speaker, that if we continue the debate on this point we shall occupy as much time as if we had resumed the debate on the Address. It has been made apparent that the Deputy Speaker had mentioned that it was six o'clock, and that no one in the House had any intention of proceeding other than in accordance with the rules. The rule is that at six o'clock the Speaker leaves the chair. In view therefore of what took place last night after six o'clock the House having proceeded inadvertently, I hope, Mr. Speaker, you will find it possible not to take cognizance of what was then done and allow the debate on the Address to continue in the regular way.

The Address-Mr. Simpson
