March 2, 1934 (17th Parliament, 5th Session)

CON

Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

We desire to accommodate ourselves to the wishes of the house in a matter of this kind. Perhaps the same consideration would obtain with respect to the Bank of Canada bill as with respect to the translations bill, as I understand an amendment is to be moved to the former. Under the circumstances, we would prefer not to proceed to-day. Might I suggest that we go on with the translations bill until six o'clock and not proceed further. One hon. gentleman is in the middle of his speech and I notice others present who are vitally affected.
