Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased indeed that the last word it should be my privilege to utter in this parliament this session should be one of entire accord with my hon. friend the leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett). He has expressed so eloquently what I believe to be the feeling of all here assembled, that it is unnecessary for me to say more that that we to your right, and indeed, I may speak for all, are in most cordial accord with what has been said about yourself in the discharge of the duties of your high and honourable position. May I add that as we bring to a Close the proceedings of another parliament and take our leave, whatever the future may hold in store for him or for us, our best wishes go with the present Speaker of the House of Commons.
