Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

I have read the amendment and standing order 75, which is as follows:
Every public bill shall be read twice in the house before committal or amendment.
. The amendment states that the bill be not now read a second time, but that it be referred to the special committee on social security. My recollection is not that of the hon. member for York-Sunbury (Mr. Hanson). It was the subject matter of the Alberta Bank bill which was referred to the banking and commerce committee. In my judgment the amendment now before the house falls under
IMr. Mackenzie King.]
and is contrary to the provisions of standing order 75; consequently the bill cannot be referred to a committee before second reading, and I shall have to rule the amendment out of order.

Topic:   FAMILY ALLOWANCES
