November 6, 1941 (19th Parliament, 2nd Session)


Alan Webster Neill



We are dealing in a very
unusual way; I do not think I ever heard or read throughout the history of Canada where a parliament sat in committee and apparently discussed everything at large, nothing before the house, no resolutions, no estimates, and apparently it is impossible for us to move a resolution or propose amendments. Might I ask the Prime Minister if it would be in order under these very unusual circumstances for any hon. member to move a motion in this committee in order to give expression to or test the feeling of the house on any particular subject?
