Hon. HUGH GUTHRIE (Minister of Justice) :
I should like to make just one observation in regard to this question. After taking part in and observing a great many votes taken in this house, I am inclined to think that part of the difficulty arises from the disorder in the chamber while the vote is being taken. I think if Your Honour would point out the necessity of obeying the rules of the house ip would help very materially. During the vote members move around; they walk from one seat to another; they enter this chamber when they should not do so. Conversation takes place all over the chamber while the vote is being recorded, and I can understand mistakes occurring by reason of this disorder. If the rules of the house in regard to keeping order while the vote is being taken were obeyed, I think time could be saved and many mistakes obviated.
