Mr. ROY:

After listening this noon to the finest music and the most harmonious melodies coming from the tower of the 'parliament buildings, it is painful to be confronted in this chamber with a report submitted for the purpose of restricting some of the most important rights, privileges and liberties of the people's representatives in parliament.
I would have no objection to most of the amendments submitted in this report. For the moment I shall not state any objection I may have to the amendments to standing orders 9, 12, 31, 37, 40, 43 and 44; but I am strongly opposed to the proposed amendment to standing order 49. This amendment completely contradicts the principles set forth in the presentation or preamble, if we can call it that, which appears in the report of the special committee.

Topic:   CONSIDERATION IN COMMITTEE OF REPORT OP SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON REVISION OF STANDING ORDERS
