Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Leader of the Opposition):

I have no objection to the budget being given reasonable priority, but I do not think it is necessary that it should have precedence over, say, the answering of questions. I am afraid the order paper would become badly cluttered if there is to be no answering of questions until the budget debate is disposed of. I should think that unopposed motions for papers might also be given consideration before the budget inasmuch as they take but a few minutes.
