Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. E. GUSS PORTER (West Hastings).

It has been intimidated to me by a certain hon. member on the government side of the House, that it is desirable to bring a public measure of considerable* importance to the attention of the House to-day, and to have it disposed of if possible. Knowing something of the nature of that measure, at this late hour, I feel like not insisting upon my right to continue this debate but to give way

for tlie discussion of that measure which will no doubt occupy tile attention of tlie House as long as it will desire to sit tonight. I feel that I would only be doing justice to that hon. member if X moved to adjourn the debate.
