Mr. Speaker, as I was rising to move this motion the Clerk of the House came to me and intimated that there might be some clash between the sitting of this committee and a sitting of the committee of the whole house. I certainly never understood until that moment that any such question would arise in this connection. Certainly we must go on with a full discussion of the war appropriation, and of course it was not intended that the sitting of this committee would preclude the discussion of anything in
Surplus War Assets
the house; but as the point has been raised perhaps it will be necessary to get it settled by a ruling of the Speaker.
Subtopic: APPOINTMENT OP COMMITTEE TO CONSIDER EXPENDITURES AND DISPOSAL OF SURPLUS WAR ASSETS
