Mr. Daniel Mclvor (Fort William):

Mr. Speaker, on a question of privilege, I want to thank hon. members of the house, members of the press gallery and a number of the elevator operators for the cheerful and generous response to the suggestion that the page boys be given a holiday. I apologize for not having got in touch with everybody yet, but the door is still open.
I will turn over to the Sergeant-at-Arms the list of donors, with what they have given. Your donations of a dollar or more must not prejudice the bonus for the page boys at the end of the session. The mayor of Montreal has telephoned an invitation, and he will show the boys the big things in his city. I suggest that next year the bachelors of the House of Commons should provide a trip for the stenographers.
