The hon. member for Burnaby-Richmond-Delta has asked that this bill stand. In fairness to the hon. member I think I should indicate that the Chair has reservations about the procedural acceptability of the bill proposed by him. I think I should warn him that my reservations have reference to the possibility that this bill might well affect either the balance of ways and means or the financial initiative of the Crown. I am sure that in drafting the bill the hon. member realized the difficulty that confronted him. I am not now, of course, making a ruling on it, but whenever the hon. member is prepared to have the bill moved for first reading he should at that time be prepared to convince the Chair that the bill is acceptable from a procedural standpoint.
