Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, there is a

motion on the order paper that this house sit to-morrow morning at eleven o'clock. It seems to me almost incredible that anyone would suggest that a committee should sit while the house is in session, with respect to a matter of such grave importance as the measure to which reference has been made. In fact when we reach that motion I shall have something to say about it. I cannot see how we can do two or three things at the same time.
