An hon. Member:

Time wasted.

Mr. Speaker put the question as follows: The question before the house is an appeal from the Speaker's ruling. Mr. St. Laurent moved:

That on Wednesday, April 27, 1949, the hours of sitting of the house shall be the same as on Tuesday, April 26, 1949, and that on Thursday, April 28, 1949, and every subsequent day until the end of the session, the house shall meet at 11 o'clock in the morning of each sitting day, and that in addition to the usual intermission at 6 o'clock there shall also be an intermission every day from 1 to 3 o'clock p.m.; that on Wednesday, April 27, 1949, government notices of motions and government orders shall have precedence over all other business except questions and notices of motions for production of papers; and further that on Thursday, April 28, 1949, standing order No. 28 shall not be applied.

Mr. Drew has moved as an amendment: that the following be added to the motion:

"that this house is of the opinion that the government should this day proceed to deal with the legislation necessary to implement the motion appearing on today's order paper to increase from $30 to $40 the basic monthly amount of pension to which the government of Canada will contribute immediately after the said motion has been adopted by this house."

I declared that amendment out of order, basing my ruling on citation 350 of Beauchesne's third edition, to be found at page 138, and which reads as follows: "It is out of order to move, as an amendment to another question, a motion standing on the order paper as a notice of motion."
