Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Knowles:

Mr. Speaker Glen, according to page 800 of Hansard of February 23, 1942, after quoting standing order 60 and standing order 38 said:
The resolution is on the order of proceedings for the day. I would point out that standing order 60 was passed in 1867, while standing order 38 was passed on March 22, 1927. In other words, standing order 38 is remedial to standing order 60, and I must conclude that standing order 38 must rule, and decide that the resolution before the house is debatable.
What was before the house? The house was not in committee. What was before the house was the motion that Mr. Speaker leave the chair for the house to resolve itself into committee of the whole on the resolution that was on the order paper. I submit that as one-half of his compromise he ruled that the motion for Mr. Speaker to leave the chair was debatable.
