The PRESIDENT - The honorable senator has called my attention to the fact that some one, presumably a stranger, was occupying the small compartment set aside for those who are permitted to be in attendance on the floor of the Chamber for the purpose of advising the Leader of the Opposition. The honorable senator is correct; but the gentleman in question had my full permission to occupy the place. While I do not wish to make any tuquoque remarks I may call attention to the fact that when the Wheat Marketing Bill, which is no longer on the businesspaper, was before the Senate, we saw occupying a seat in theenclosure for officials on the Government side of the House a gentleman who I have since learned was not a public official. At all events, public officials or not, it lies within my province to give permission to any one who I think may be useful and aidful to the respective leaders on either side of the chamber to occupy the seats on the floor of the chamber reserved for officials.

Question resolved inthe affirmative.

Senate adjourned at 5.58 a.m. (Thursday).
