Mr. E. LAPOINTE:

It is on page 4386 of Hansard. The Prime Minister allows me to refer to it and you will be kind enough to listen. The right hon. leader of the Opposition (Sir Wilfrid Laurier) had made a Suggestion that a committee should be appointed to consider the resolution. The right hon. gentleman replied:

I would suggest to my right hon. friend that we might go into committee on the resolution and perhaps pass it, and then, before the second reading takes place, we could consider my right hon. friend's suggestion. It is desirably, of course, that all information that is relevant should be afforded, but whatever discussion could take place upon the resolution could also take place in committee after the second reading of the Bill.

Upon those words of my right hon. friend, the resolution was allowed to pass. Now that we are in committee after the- second reading of the Bill, is it fair that we should be prevented from carrying on the discussion that the right hon. gentleman said we would have an opportunity for?

Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

My hon. friend has been deprived of the opportunity by others on his own side of the House who have monopolized the time. He will be given great opportunity to-morrow because none of these gentlemen who have beep speaking for an hour and one-half at a time can speak for more than twenty minutes tomorrow.
