Hon. Mr. LAPOINTE:

The answer to this question involves a long statement. It would be a rather voluminous document to insert in Hansard, and I would ask that the question be changed into an order for return, which I now lay on the table of the House.

Hon. Mr. FIELDING:

There is no motion on the order paper in the name of the hon.

Questions

member referred to. I assume the reference is to a motion that stands in the name of the hon. member for West Middlesex (Mr. Drummond). In the opinion of the government we can hardly profitably discuss the motion in its present form. It speaks of certain reforms which are desirable, but it devises or suggests no particular means of carrying out the hon. member's desire. I suggest that if the hon. member will consult with the Law Clerk, who will be available, and will put his motion in the form of a bill, an opportunity will be given at a later stage to bring it forward.
