Mr. C. H. CAHAN (St. Lawrence-St. George):
Mr. Speaker, I beg leave to make a motion with respect to a private bill of which no notice is required under rule 40: but the motion itself is under rule 17A regarding routine motions for the management of the business of the House. The motion is: That in the opinion of this House it is expedient that private bills be considered and dealt with at three o'clock this afternoon.
I have shown the motion to the hon. Minister of Finance; I had not the opportunity to show it to the Prime Minister.
