Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

I understand my hon. friend's motion to be that we should proceed to discuss his bill, which appears on page 7 of the routine proceedings, being a bill to amend the Railway Act. The hon. member will have noticed that a moment ago I asked the house to suspend one of the rules in order to give precedence to-day to the debate on the budget. In the circumstances I do not think we should attempt to take up any other measure in the interval. My hon. friend's 'bill appears among others under public bills and orders. A date may be fixed for its consideration at an appropriate time, but not to-day.
