Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):
I should like to move the motion of which notice is to be found at page 34 of today's orders of the day. It reads:
That on Monday, March 28 instant, government notices of motions shall have precedence over all other business except routine proceedings, introduction of bills, questions, and notices of motions for production of papers.
The purpose of the motion is to provide an opportunity to discuss today the resolution standing in my name having to do with the North Atlantic security pact. If the motion that I have just read is adopted, it is not the intention of the government to avail itself of it for any other purpose than to consider the motion with respect to the North Atlantic security pact. If that motion is disposed of before the end of the day the house will then revert to the business provided by the standing orders.
Subtopic: PRECEDENCE OF GOVERNMENT NOTICES OF MOTIONS ON MONDAY, MARCH 28
