Hon. J. W. EDWARDS (Frontenac):
Owing to the recess which took up the month of January, private members, I understand, are deprived of Thursday, so that we have now only Mondays and Wednesdays. I think the government should take that fact into consideration. I do not believe the introduction of such a motion so early in the session
will expedite the business of the House nor will it tend to shorten the session. I would ask the Prime Minister to take into account the fact, which I have pointed out, that owing to the recess, private members will not now have that full opportunity, which otherwise they would have had during an entire month, to discuss questions in which they are interested. I do not think that the motion ought to be pressed at this time.
