Richard Burpee Hanson (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition) :

I believe there can be no great objection to the passing of this motion at this stage of the proceedings, in order that the bill may

be advanced to a point where discussion may be held on second reading, it being distinctly understood that this bill is not within the class of unopposed measures as designated in the motion proposed yesterday. On the understanding that there will be full opportunity for discussion either now or at a later stage- and I presume the hon. member wishes to proceed with second reading this afternoon-

I believe there can be no possible objection to the motion.

Gerald Grattan McGeer

Liberal

Mr. McGEER:

It is debatable now. I

understood we would agree to introduce the bill now, debate it, and then have it sent on to a committee. But there is no restriction on the debate. I should like to make it clear to hon. members that yesterday, when I introduced the resolution I did, I understood that that was the formal procedure. If on the introduction of the motion of yesterday there was opposition to any of the bills named, I understood they could be debated later on second reading. Under the rules the bill could not go to the committee of the house which is to consider it in detail-in this instance the committee on railways-until it gets its second reading. As I understand it the bill is now debatable on second reading.

Mr. LAPOINTE (Quebec East):

The
