PRIVILEGE-Mr. BOULANGER

Mr. OSCAR L. BOULANGER (Belle-chasse): I rise to a question of privilege which concerns not only myself but every member of this house. I refer to the right of members of the House of Commons of placing questions on the order paper, and I have in mind two questions which appear under my name, No. 13 and No. 14, in which I ask whether the Admiralty Act of 1934 and the Canada Shipping Act of 1934 have been put into force. What appears on the order paper is only half of the questions which I sent to the clerk of the house to be placed on the order paper. Half of my question has been removed. The questions have been amputated and mutilated without my knowledge or consent. Of course, I understand that any question of mine oi of any other member of the house must conform to the rules of the house before it appears on the order paper. But whether any question is in conformity with the rules of the house is for you, Mr. Speaker, to decide and for no one else; and it is for you to decide the matter in the House of Commons and not in camera in order that, if I am not satisfied with your decision, I may appeal from you to the house. I was not interested in ascertaining whether these acts had been put into force or not-I knew that already. I was interested to know why, for what reasons they Lave not been put into operation; and that part of my inquiry has been omitted from my question without my consent or knowledge. I submit that this practice, which has obtained for a long time in the house, is not a proper practice; it is not the regular practice, it is not the legal practice, and it is not the courteous practice.

Pierre Édouard Blondin (Speaker of the Senate)

Conservative (1867-1942)

him for calling the matter to my attention, and it will receive the consideration which it deserves.
