Robert James Manion (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. R. J. MANION (Leader of the Opposition):

May I suggest that in view of the
lack of interest expressed by the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe) himself in the bills mentioned, it is not fair that two or three bills should be put in a preferred position as these bills would be if the motion passes. I suggest to the Minister of Justice that the motion be allowed to stand, and that he give further consideration to letting these bills take the ordinary course. There would be a misunderstanding if two or three bills were put in a preferred position. I think the government should let them take the ordinary course.
