Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

I would point out to the hon. member that when I say a question is not urgent I do not mean that the situation itself may not be urgent. The point is, if the question is put in the house will the immediate afiswer of the minister relieve the situation? In most cases, even if the question is put in the house, for some reason or other the minister is not ready to give an answer and it does not help anyone. If the question is placed upon the order paper the minister can look at it and give an answer which will be useful to hon. members. That is why I suggest that such questions be placed on the order paper.
