Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. R. B. BENNETT :

Twice this
matter has been before the Committee on Private Bills and has been rejected. I, for one, object to its being brought before the House. And, I raise the point of order, as I think I am entitled to do, that the motion cannot be brought forward at this time. If any case clearly indicates the necessity of provision being made by Parliament for the creation of a proper tribunal to consider divorces, it is this. It is the kind of case that should not be thrust upon this House for consideration. I am not a member of the committee, but at this stage of the session I am not disposed to question the conclusion of the committee which twice considered the matter.

Topic:   THE ALEXANDER DIVORCE BILL.
