National Government

Mr. GEORGE BLACK (Yukon):

Mr. Speaker, on a question of privilege I would call the attention of the government to public bills and orders appearing on the order paper, and particularly to a bill standing in my name as order No. 12. This bill has passed the senate and has had a first reading in this chamber. Would it not be possible to have second and third readings of the bill in the house, if not at this session, then when the house meets again pursuant to adjournment and before prorogation? If the house prorogues without finishing the business on the order paper, all that has been done before will be washed out and will have to be done again. The bill would have to have three readings in this house, three in the senate, and receive royal assent. It is all but through this house, and I would ask the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) to give me some indication as to what might be expected.
