Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

Everyone knows that a
motion to adjourn is not debatable, but a grave and extraordinary situation has arisen. I do not see that there is any opposition to the motion to adjourn; but Bourinot at page 355 says plainly that under such circumstances the leaders in the House of Commons are allowed by courtesy of the House to make statements. I understand the right hon. gentleman is not debating the motion to adjourn. That would be out of order.

Topic:   RESIGNATION OF GOVERNMENT
Subtopic:   ANNOUNCEMENT BY MR. MACKENZIE KING-ADJOURNMENT OF THE HOUSE
