Mr. W. F. MACLEAN.
Before the Orders of the Day are called, I would like to direct the attention of the First Alinister to a practice which seems to obtain a good deal this session, that of moving the House into Supply two or three hours after dinner, when neither the Prime Minister nor any of the other ministers are in their places. In the days of my parliamentary innocence it was the practice, I think, to move the House into Supply when the Prime Minister and most of his colleagues were here, and I would like to see that practice resumed. It may be fastidious on my part to vent this idea, but I would like to see it observed a little more, so that the undoubted right of every member of parliament to discuss some public question on going into Supply may be maintained, and that the ministers may be in their places to hear what is said.
