Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister) :

I promised the right hon. gentleman
(Mr. Mackenzie King) that I would inform him to-day with respect to the Easter recess. If it is acceptable, as I understand it is from what was said yesterday, it will be proposed to adjourn on the Wednesday evening preceding Good Friday and convene again on the succeeding Tuesday. I said Thursday, yesterday, but Thursday will be a holy day. This arrangement will allow us to sit on Wednesday, and, if the house thinks desirable, we might sit until eleven o'clock. At any rate, I will give notice in the ordinary way on the order paper.
