Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

On the point of order,
standing order 101 reads:
No motion for the suspension of the standing orders-
Just what this resolution is.
-or any rule respecting a petition for a private bill will be entertained, unless the same has been reported upon by the committee on standing orders, and the committee in its report shall state the grounds for recommending such suspension.
The only question in my mind with respect to following the course suggested by the hon. member for Kootenay East (Mr. Stevens) is this: Can this corporation get its new application before parliament without again paying 81,400? Can it proceed at all? I think that is the question that must be decided, and the standing orders committee would be the appropriate body to go into that phase of the matter.
