Mr. SPEAKER:

In my opinion the "yeas" have it. Call in the members.

Mr. SPEAKER put the question as follows:

The question before the house is an appeal from the Speaker's ruling. Mr. Ilsley moved, seconded by Mr. Mackenzie, the following motion:

That the Speaker do now leave the chair for the house to resolve itself into committee of the whole to consider the following resolution:

That it is expedient to introduce a measure to provide for the continuation of certain orders and regulations of the governor in council for a limited period during the national emergency arising out of the war and to provide therein that the governor in council may appoint and fix the compensation of the officers, clerks and employees necessary for the administration of any order or regulation continued in force by the Act and further to provide that certain officers, clerks and employees may continue to perform the duties for which they yrere previously appointed.

Mr. Coldwell moved, seconded by Mr. Maclnnis, in amendment:

That Mr. Speaker do not now leave the-chair but that it be resolved that in the opinion of this house the headlong decontrol policy of the government has depressed the standard of living of the people, threatens the country with economic chaos, and is surrendering the future of Canada to profiteering and monopoly

And be it further resolved that in the opinion of this house the government should give immediate consideration to the introduction of a system of orderly and democratic controls so as to provide stable price levels and equitable price relationships in order to eliminate the injustices which now exist and to arrest the rapidly rising cost of living.

I declared the amendment out of order, and I based my ruling on standing order 50, which reads as follows:

A motion to refer a bill, resolution or any other question to the committee of the whole, or any standing or special committee shall preclude all amendment of the main question.

The house divided on the question: Shall

the Speaker's decision be sustained? And the decision of the chair was sustained on the following division:
