Norman Alexander McLarty (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. McLARTY:

I am afraid, no matter
how willing the hon. member for Parkdale may be to expedite the matter, once the order is passed by the house-and I point out we are now in committee-no member moving a resolution asking for a return, without consent of the house, would have any right to vary that order. I presume the ordinary procedure is to put a question on the order paper. I do not think we could accept the willingness of .the hon. member for Parkdale, no matter how great it might be, and treat that as an abrogation of the order the house itself has passed.
