Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
This will probably be the
proper time, Mr. Speaker, for me to move the resolution standing in my name, as follows :
That when the house adjourns on Friday, the 22nd of March, instant, it stand adjourned until Tuesday, the 2nd of April, next.
I mentioned yesterday that I would ask the chief whip to see the other whips of the house and ascertain if it was possible to come to some agreement that would suit the convenience of all. That was a pretty large order, but I am told by the chief whip that if this; resolution were amended to read: That the
house stand adjourned until the 4th of April instead of 2nd of April, he is of the opinion, from the conversations he has had, that the resolution would meet with general acceptance. Having that in mind, I would ask the house to permit me to amend the resolution by changing the date from the 2nd of April to the 4th of April. The resolution would then read:
That when the house adjourns on Friday, the 22nd of March, instant, it stand adjourned until Thursday, the 4th of April, next.
