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

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

Mr. Knowles:

I would go further, Mr. Speaker, and say that you have not only faced the issue but you have probably indicated the difficulty of carrying out the ruling Mr. Speaker Glen gave and, as a result of taking that stand, we are trying to help you to arrive at a better ruling than the one Mr. Speaker Glen made.
Without giving all the history, may I say that I have taken the trouble to go through Hansard from that date down to the present time and, if there were time, I could give in every year examples of major debates of this kind that took place with the Speaker in the chair.

Topic:   FARM IMPROVEMENT LOANS ACT
