Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

Oh, yes; I did. What I am about to say is that I am happy that that step has not been necessary. I should like to congratulate hon. members upon the way they have expedited the business of the house so as to make possible prorogation by June 30. I think splendid progress has been made and, as I say, I am pleased that matters have reached the point where it is not necessary to consider any adjournment of the present session.
I believe it is generally the wish of all hon. members that if possible, and without sacrificing anything in the public interest, we should wind up the business of the session today.
