Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING:

(Prime Minister) Mr. Speaker, I regret that there has been any oversight in informing my right hon. friend of the customary procedure at the opening of parliament, but I had assumed that his experience in this House would have sufficiently acquainted him with what was customary on the opening day. I think, when we consider that hon. members are gathered together for the first time in this new Parliament, it will probably be consulting the convenience of all parties if we follow the custom of the past and adjourn after to-day's proceedings until Monday.

Topic:   THE GOVERNOR GENERAL'S SPEECH
