Pierre Édouard Blondin (Speaker of the Senate)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPEAKER:

On October 10th the following resolution was passed by the house:
That on and after Monday, 10th instant and every day thereafter, government notices of motion and government orders shall have
Wheat Bonus

precedence over all business except questions by members and notices of motion for the production of papers.
Under standing order 15 the introduction of bills is treated as business. A public bill would have to appear on the order paper before government business and therefore, by the resolution under which the house is operating, is precluded from the order paper. Notices of motion are on the order paper after government business; a public bill cannot be so placed on the order paper. Bills are not in any way prejudiced by being left off the order paper until they can be dealt with. When that time arrives they will at once be placed on the order paper.
