February 27, 1911 (11th Parliament, 3rd Session)


Arthur Meighen

Conservative (1867-1942)


Before the House adjourns I beg to call the attention of the Prime Minister to the fact that we are very close to order No. 8, the further consideration of the resolution in favour of a substantial reduction in the duties on agricultural implements which I had the honour to urge upon the House one month ago. At a later date, when Mr. CAMPBELL.
we approached the order for resuming the discussion, the Prime Minister moved the adjournment of the House, so that the discussion was avoided at his instance. He assured me then that on the following Monday it would come up, but that again did not turn out to be correct. To-night the resolution is again shifted ahead by the motion of the Prime Minister, and I very much fear that the result will be that it will not be reached again this session, as I understand that this is the last private members' day.
