Robert James Manion (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MANION:

But, Mr. Speaker, the
house has some rights. Yesterday the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Woodsworth) used the word "railroading." I do not like to use that word, but it almost looks like it. Surely we have the right to know something about the legislation that is proposed. Changes are being made. Of course the government can insist upon refusing to give it to us. I appreciate they have the power, but as a matter of courtesy we should have this information.
