James Horace King (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

The hon. member for Calgary West courteously notified me of his intention to make this motion. I have had the opportunity of considering it and will not need to delay the house further by examining the motion. The hon. member is asking for leave to move the adjournment of the house to discuss an urgent matter. I must draw the hon. member's attention to the fact that this question is already before the house in the debate on the budget. During that debate, as he knows, it is the privilege of every hon. member to make any suggestion or recommendation to the government that he sees fit, and to discuss any matter which comes under government responsibility; therefore I do not see any urgency to adjourn the house to discuss the matter, and I cannot allow the motion to be proceeded with.
