Mr. STEWART (Edmonton) :
While in some respects I agree with what the Minister of Finance has said respecting the amendments, because I have gone over them carefully, I hardly agree-
Mr. 'SPEAKER: May I interrupt the
hon. member? I think we might as well decide before the discussion is allowed to continue whether we are to proceed in the ordinary way as laid down by the rules of the house. There is a motion before the house upon which hon. members have the right to speak once-it should be well understood that we are not in committee. If it is the wish of the house to proceed in some other manner, hon. members need only intimate what they consider desirable in that regard and I shall endeavour to carry out their wishes. As it stands at the present time, however, I shall have to ask that we proceed in the ordinary manner.
