Mr. SPEAKER:

This amendment in my judgment is out of order. When a Bill is referred to a committee, it is in order to give instructions to that com-12 noon, mittee to do certain things that otherwise it has not the power to do. The Committee of the Whole has the power to do, without instructions from the House, what the hon. member for Edmonton (Mr. Oliver) desires done, when the Bill has been referred back for further consideration, and as that amendment has been negatived already this amendment is out of order.

Mr. SPEAKER:

I beg to say from the

Chair that, while I would not regard this as a matter of privilege according to my understanding of privilege, it is quite proper that the right hon. gentleman should draw attention to this leaflet as he has done and deny it if he wishes to do so.

Mr. SPEAKER:

I would like to say that the hon. member is offending against the rules in two particulars. One is that he is not discussing the principle of this Bill, and the other is that he is referring to matters in committee which are not reported to this House, and therefore cannot properly be referred to in this House.
