Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

We could proceed with this debate to-morrow, but for the fact that of course on Thursday the Speaker leaves the chair automatically without question put. If the debate could be continued to-morrow with the same result as if a division had been reached to-day, it would be very helpful.

Mr. BENNETT:

I see no reason why that should not be done, speaking for those with whom 1 am associated. Of course, the hon. member who moved the amendment may have some other reason in the premises. There seems no good reason why the debate should not be proceeded with now for another fifteen minutes.

Hewitt Bostock (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

The question is whether this house should continue to sit this afternoon or whether the hon. member for Comox-Alfoerni (Mr. Neill) should be allowed to move the adjournment of the debate. It has been suggested that the debate might be continued to-morrow, although it being Thursday the Speaker automatically leaves the chair without question put. As this affects a rule of the house, the suspension of the rule must be agreed to unanimously. Will it 'be agreeable to the house to proceed to-morrow as if it was not Thursday when the Speaker automatically leaves the chair without question put?

I would point out, sir, that

the hon. member for Vancouver North (Mr. McRae) was allowed last night at fifteen minutes before eleven o'clock to adjourn the debate.

Mr. BENNETT:

No, it was less than five minutes to eleven. I object to the house stopping at fifteen minutes before six o'clock. The other night we finished up a matter a few minutes after six, I think we should continue until six o'clock.

Mr. NEILL:

I rise to a point of order, Mr. Speaker. An hon. gentleman states that I often waste the time of the house. I ask for your ruling, sir. I submit that it is out of order for such a statement to be made, and I am willing to go at great length into the rules which so prescribe, as I think you will find, sir, if you will allow me time to look them up. I know I saw the other day that it is out of order to use the expression "stupid," and I know it has been ruled that the word "misrepresentation" is also out of order. Surely it is out of order to suggest than an hon. member on this side often wastes the time of the house. I would ask your ruling, sir, on that definite point: Is any hon. member

justified in saying that another hon. member often wastes the time of the house?

Mr. SPEAKER:

No, it is not in order to say that an hon. gentleman wastes the time of the house. Therefore I would ask that the expression be withdrawn.
