Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

That is what he said in moving for leave to introduce the bill; that was what caught my attention. The bill clearly contemplates that the minister shall spend money, and it is not competent for a private member to instruct the house that the minister shall spend money to buy silver.

Pierre Édouard Blondin (Speaker of the Senate)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPEAKER:

I am inclined to think that the objection raised by the Prime Minister is a vital one. However, if the hon. member will allow the matter to stand until to-morrow I shall have an opportunity in the meantime to consider his remarks as reported in Hansard and will then rule on the question.

Motion stands.
