Mr SPEAKER - Order ! The sooner the Opposition learns that I am in charge of the business of this House, the better. I thought that I had heard a Minister move for an extension of time. What view of the matter may be held by the Opposition is immaterial to me. Whether or not there shall be an extension of time, is a matter for the House to decide. [Extension of time granted."]

Mr SPEAKER - While the Minister has been speaking, there has been an unfair and, apparently, an organized attempt to interrupt him. I draw the attention of the 'Opposition to the fact that during the whole of the speech of their leader there was only one interjection; for the remainder of the time, he was heard in complete silence. If there is any further attempt to' interrupt the Minister in the additional time that has been granted to him, I shall name the offender.
