William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)
Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
May I say to the leader of the opposition that there is a rule under which it is sought to confine questions on the orders of the day as largely as possible to urgent matters. Questions which can be answered by notice on the order paper should be placed there. My hon. friend will not mind my saying that he himself sets an example to the rest of the house. Several times I have asked myself whether he has considered the effect of his asking me questions almost every day. I do not object to my hon. friend asking questions, but I do think a number of the questions which have been asked have not been so much for the purpose of having me give my hon. friend information as for some other purpose.
Subtopic: PROCEDURE IN QUESTIONS ASKED ON THE ORDERS OF THE DAY
