Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister) :

The notice of motion standing in my name since May 6 with respect to the constitution of a tariff board, I desire now to move, seconded by Mr. Stevens. This resolution has been submitted to His Excellency the Governor General; it has been approved by him, and is recommended to the favour-

able consideration of the house. It provides merely for the constitution, functions and duties of *a tariff board. On the second read-ung of the bill, an adequate explanation will be given.

Mr. BENNETT:

This notice has been standing on the order paper since the 6th May. Is it necessary to make a further motion that we should go into committee on another day? I have seen different practices in the house and a moment ago I was discussing the matter with the hon. member for South Wellington (Mr. Guthrie). As the matter stands, the notice has been on the order paper for eight days, and when it is said that consideration must be given on another day, it seems to me that the practice is certainly a waste of time.

Mr. BENNETT:

I am only desirous that

the practice should be settled, because clearly I could not give notice to-day for consideration to-morrow, for that would not be ample time; but when I have given eight days' notice on the order paper, it seems to me that to move now for consideration to-morrow, is only moving now what was done in writing on the 6th May. I mention this only for the purpose of having the practice cleared up.
