Mr. CURRIE:

I submit, Mr. Chairman, that notice of this motion should have been given. I do not find any notice of it in the Votes and Proceedings.

Mr. CURRIE:

The evidence of the commissioners themselves is to the effect that we have gone further in one year than Great Britain or the United States did in fifty years, and that the bulk of appointments in those countries are not under their Civil Service commissions at all. Those are facts which were given under oath. Has the hon. gentleman read that evidence?

Mr. CURRIE:

It has always been customary to give notice. The hon. member for London (Mr. Cronyn) gave notice of his amendments in the Votes and Proceedings, and I think the hon. member for Nicolet should have done the same. Whether there is a rule or not it has always been the practice in this Parliament to give notice.

The hon. member is in

a very invidious position if he cannot produce the evidence.
