Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
A special committee was
appointed yesterday to consider problems affecting returned soldiers. The number comprising the committee was fixed at seventeen. Apparently seventeen is an infraction of the rule, which would limit the number to fifteen. 1 move, therefore:
That the provision of standing order No. 65, under which no special committee may, without leave of the house, consist of more than fifteen members, be suspended in connection with the resolution passed by this house on February 15, appointing the special committee on pensions and returned soldiers' problems.
