I rise on a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker. Monday next, October 10, will be Thanksgiving day. In common with many others, I feel sure that the Prime Minister has a good deal to be thankful for, and I was wondering whether he would permit the members of this house to have next Monday as a holiday.
Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime
Minister): The Prime Minister is always susceptible to any suggestion that comes from the other side of the house. I take it that the applause means that there are several in the house who agree with the suggestion which has been made. If it appears to be the desire of the house, the government will take the necessary steps to see to it that when the house adjourns on Friday night it stand adjourned until three o'clock the following Tuesday.
