Hugh Guthrie (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GUTHRIE:

I do not mind agreeing
that we meet at three o'clock to-morrow but I suggest that the Prime Minister allow the motion to stand until we have had an opportunity of discussing it. Meeting at three o clock instead of at two on Wednesdays takes an hour off one of the days allotted to private members. I am not sure whether or not, in consequence of the recess which we have had, private members are now to be deprived of Thursday. If I am right in assuming that they are, then Mondays and Wednesdays are the only private members' days now available, and Thursday becomes a government day. I do not want to curtail the rights of private members who may have motions which they desire to discuss, and I am afraid that such will be the effect if the present motion is carried.
