Arthur Meighen (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs)


Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Prime Minister) :

Mr. Speaker, it was my
intention to move at this, the correct time, the motion of which I gave notice on Monday last relative to the amendment to the Dominion Elections Act. I have, however, conferred with my friend the leader of the Opposition, who is unable to be present just at the moment, and it has been agreed that, provided the House concurs, the motion he not gone on with now but that it be taken up later in the afternoon when the leader of the Opposition is present. I hope this is acceptable to the hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Crerar) and to the House generally.
SELECT STANDING COMMITTEES Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN: I beg to move, seconded by Right Hon. Sir George Poster:
That the name of Mr. McDermand he added to the Select Standing Committees on Agriculture and Colonization, Miscellaneous Private Bills, and Standing Orders.
