Mr. Speaker, I should just like to congratulate the Prime Minister (Mr. St. Laurent) on the day that he has chosen as the one on which he expects to open the next session. February 14 is a great day. That is the day that has some heart in it. That is also the day when my dad said I first saw the light. It augurs well for the next session. May it be one of peace and progress, and one with some heart in it.
I congratulate you, Mr. Speaker, and your whole staff-and that includes the page boys -on the splendid service we have received during this special session.
Topic: BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE
Subtopic: ADJOURNMENT ON COMPLETION OF CURRENT BUSINESS UNTIL FEBRUARY 14, 1951
Mr. Speaker, I move that the house do now adjourn until eleven o'clock tomorrow morning. I think we have reason to expect that by then the other place will have dealt with the bills that have been dealt with here and that the royal assent might be given to that legislation. The motion that has just been adopted applies only after the current business of the session is completed. That business will not be completed until Mr. Speaker comes back to this house and reports that royal assent has been given to the bills that have been passed.
Motion agreed to and the house adjourned at 4.55 p.m.
