Mr. SPEAKER:

With regard to the question raised by the hon. member, I must decide as to its being a matter of urgent public importance. I refer the hon. member to standing order 31, paragraph 3, which reads:
He then hands a written statement of the matter proposed to be discussed to the Speaker, who, if he thinks it in order and of urgent public importance, reads it out and asks whether the member has the leave of the house.
My ruling must be that this matter is not of urgent public importance requiring discussion

Labour Conditions-Kirkland Lake
at this moment. When the house has reached the discussion stage in committee of the whole, and the Minister of Labour (Mr. McLarty) is dealing with his department, the hon. member will be at liberty to bring up the matter to which he refers. I therefore rule his motion out of order.
