Hewitt Bostock (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

The question is whether this house should continue to sit this afternoon or whether the hon. member for Comox-Alfoerni (Mr. Neill) should be allowed to move the adjournment of the debate. It has been suggested that the debate might be continued to-morrow, although it being Thursday the Speaker automatically leaves the chair without question put. As this affects a rule of the house, the suspension of the rule must be agreed to unanimously. Will it 'be agreeable to the house to proceed to-morrow as if it was not Thursday when the Speaker automatically leaves the chair without question put?

Topic:   SUPPLY-AUSTRALIAN TREATY AMENDMENTS TO MOTION OF MINISTER OF FINANCE FOR COMMITTEE
