Mr. POULIOT:

If I may be allowed to read the letter as soon as the house goes into committee of the whole, then I have no objection. What I want to read pertains to the 'conduct of the war, and it is drafted in the finest English language. This is precisely the matter before us now.

Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

It would be in order for the hon. member to take that up when we get into committee of the whole. At the moment we are dealing with a motion for the suspension of standing order 21 in order that the plebiscite bill may be considered in committee of the whole this day. Perhaps the hon. member will wait until the bill gets into committee of the whole.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I said that I thought we would be all afternoon on the bill as well as to-night. We could hold over any clauses which it was thought desirable to discuss later. I have already agreed to holding over clause 4 till to-night. We will not try to rush the bill through but would like to make what progress we can with the general consent of the house.
