Liberal

Mr. LAPOINTE (Quebec East):

I ask my hon. friend to read the rules and consider carefully whether there is an appeal from such a decision of the Speaker. This is not an ordinary ruling. It is a duty which devolves upon the Speaker to say whether in his opinion
__not in any other opinion-the matter sought
to be discussed is a matter of urgent public importance. I do not think there is any appeal to the house from the decision of the Speaker as to whether this is or is not a matter of urgent public importance.
