Mr. Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

should also like to congratulate all those who have been fortunate enough to get tickets for tonight's performance of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet at the National Arts Centre, after which we shall enjoy a centennial birthday party, the hosts for which will be Mr. Schrey-er, the premier of the province, and Mr. Maitland Steinkopf, Chairman of the Manitoba Centennial Corporation.

Perhaps in honour of this occasion the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, my hon. friend from Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands and the hon. member for Shefford might like to wear Manitoba pins today.

Mr. Speaker, if I may add a brief word to what the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre has said, I should like to remind you and all members of the House that throughout this entire year Manitoba will be celebrating its centennial. There is an old saying that all wise men come from the east.

Mr. Dinsdale:

Those of us who come from Manitoba will subscribe to that viewpoint, adding that the wiser they are, the faster they come. We cordially invite all hon. members to visit the Keystone province during 1970.

Hon. Donald S. Macdonald (President of the Privy Council):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 41(2) I should like to lay on the table of the House, in both official languages, a paper setting out details with respect to the business of the House for the balance of the session.

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, I have no objection whatsoever to the tabling of this document. In fact, the President of the Privy Council has been good enough to let some of us see it in advance. But I should like to enter a caveat against this being done under Standing Order 41(2).

[DOT] (2:10 p.m.)

It seems to me this is House business and that it would be more appropriate if the President of the Privy Council were to ask the unanimous consent of the House to table

the document. I do not have my rule book open before me, but the pertinent Standing Order says that the minister may do this with respect to any statement that deals with any matter coming under the administrative responsibilities of the government. This statement has to do with the business of the House and, whatever territory the government may take in, it is not responsible for the administration of the House. I do not ask for a debate on the point of order or a ruling; I am satisfied to enter a caveat, although there may be other occasions when we may wish to argue the point further. But today it would be much better if the Government House Leader were to ask for unanimous consent, which I am sure he would get, for the tabling of this document.

Mr. G. W. Baldwin (Peace River):

Mr. Speaker, with reference to the point of order Your Honour may recall that in the previous session we raised similar objections in connection with motions of the Minister of Finance and other ministers. Today I am prepared to say that our party will give its unanimous consent for the tabling of the document. However, I leave with Your Honour the caveat that while the Prime Minister and the President of the Privy Council are moving rapidly in the direction of making the House of Commons the administrative responsibility of the government, they have not quite reached that point. I wish to make that quite plain.
