The Chairman:

The hon. member for Eglin-ton has moved that the word "but" be changed to "and" in the eighth line and also that the word "not" be struck out in line eight on page two. This would have the effect of removing the exclusions in paragraph (e), and I would be forced to the conclusion that this would increase the expense to the crown. I think I have referred to this question on a number of occasions and I need not elaborate upon it. However, I shall quote once again from May's fifteenth edition, page 678:

The guiding principle in determining the effect of an amendment upon the financial initiative of the crown is that the communication, to which the royal demand or recommendation is attached, must be treated as laying down once for all (unless withdrawn and replaced) not only the amount of a charge, but also its objects, purposes, conditions and qualifications.

I think the rule is quite clear, and I would be forced to declare the amendment out of order.
