Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):
Mr. Speaker on Tuesday of this week the chairman of the public accounts committee, the member for Northumberland, Ontario (Mr. Fraser), presented the second report of the public accounts committee and subsequently moved concurrence in the report. I rose in my place on that occasion and declined to give approval to the motion, pointing out that the customary notice had not been given and that the house must of course give unanimous consent to the matter then being proceeded with. I should like to ask, if I may, that the proceedings and the evidence taken before the public accounts committee up to the time the second report was presented to the house and concurrence in it moved be tabled so that it will be available for the convenience of hon. members, to enable them intelligently to discuss the motion for concurrence when it is again made.
Subtopic: REQUEST FOR TABLING OF EVIDENCE AND PROCEEDINGS OF STANDING COMMITTEE
