Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

May I say,
Mr. Speaker, that as far as the price spreads investigation is concerned I am not referring to it at the moment, but to the legislation on social insurance of which notice has already been given. As to depriving private members of their day I realize that any motion to give government orders precedence must be by unanimous consent. I believe if it were understood that private members' motions were simply being postponed in order to let the government proceed with its own reform measures, such a motion would receive unanimous consent; at least I can speak for the official opposition when I say that we would be unanimous in our acceptance of such a motion.
