PRIVILEGE

MR. FRASER-OMISSION OF QUESTIONS SUBMITTED FOR ORDER PAPER

PC

Gordon Knapman Fraser

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. K. FRASER (Peterborough West):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. Yesterday afternoon at the hour of 3.30 I submitted in the usual way eight questions for the order paper, but to-day, in the Votes and Proceedings dated Thursday, July 18, 1946, these questions are not listed. I now ask for a full explanation, coupled with the request that an order do issue that these eight questions be listed in Votes and Proceedings of to-day as being questions for the order paper.

Mr. Speaker, I beg leave to lay on the table of the house a petition signed by approximately 8,000 residents of British Columbia, humbly praying that this honourable house may be pleased to enact such measures as may be necessary to ensure that all people of Japanese descent be deported from Canada at the close of the present war, and that provisions for their acceptance by Japan be embodied in the armistice or peace terms.

BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

INQUIRY AS TO QUESTIONS DROPPED FROM ORDER PAPER


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):

May I direct your attention again, Mr. Speaker, to the matter of questions? Two questions that were permitted to stand yesterday have been dropped and do not appear on to-day's order paper. I think this will require some explanation to the house.

Grote Stirling

Mr. STIRLING:

May I ask the minister who is leading the house if he will be good enough to explain by what order or under what regulations a question which stood as No. 1 on the order paper for yesterday has been removed from the order paper of to-day? It was a question which had to do with War Assets Corporation.

Mr. ST. LAURENT: I am not in a position to give an answer to the hon. member. The house is master of its own proceedings. It is not the government that makes up the order paper. I do not know the import of the hon. gentleman's question, but I understand it concerns a question which was on the order paper and which has been removed. It has certainly not been removed by any order of the government.
