Hon. R. B. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

Mr. Speaker, may I be permitted to ask the Prime Minister if it is his intention to drop the order of business now standing under the heading of motions, namely, the further consideration in committee of the whole of the report of the special committee on the revision of standing orders, and on the proposed amendment thereto of Mr. Neill. Speaking for myself and myself alone, I would regret the abandonment of this order. The committee was set up in a perfectly non-partisan way; it was a good committee and it did a lot of hard work. During the debate ensuing on the report of the committee it appeared that there was objection to the proposals, but I hope

that will not- deter the Prime Minister from proceeding or endeavouring to proceed with this order of business before the close of the session. If the proposal had merit at its inception, it still has merit, and I suggest that it has.
