Sir WILLIAM LYNE (HumeMinister of Trade and Customs) . - I had hoped that this debate would be concluded to-night. There are! only One or two more speakers. Unless there' are some other speakers who will be ready to proceed to-morrow there is no use in adjourning.

Mr SPEAKER - The question of the adjournment of the debate is not open for discussion under the Standing Orders passed last session. The question isi that the debate be now adjourned.

Sir William Lyne - I merely wish to say-

Mr SPEAKER - I cannot help the honorable gentleman. The Standing Orders passed last session provide that there can be no debate on a motion for the adjournment of a debate.

Sir William Lyne - I was merely about to state when the debate will be taken up again.

Mr SPEAKER - I cannot allow that statement to be made on this question. A motion will, I presume, be submitted as to when the debate will be set down for resumption. The Minister can then make his statement. But unless I deliberately violate the Standing Orders passed last year I cannot permit a debate on the question now before the House.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
