Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker, on Thursday last the Prime Minister moved and this house adopted a resolution to the effect that the speech of His Excellency the Governor General, delivered at the opening of parliament, would be taken into consideration to-day, but the resolution did not state that consideration of His Excellency's speech should have precedence over the other items on the order paper. It was rather the expectation of hon. members of the house that such would be the case, and unless the government's intention is to the contrary I think a resolution to that effect would be in order.
