PC

Grote Stirling

Progressive Conservative

Mr. STIRLING:

May I ask the minister who is leading the house if he will be good enough to explain by what order or under what regulations a question which stood as No. 1 on the order paper for yesterday has been removed from the order paper of to-day? It was a question which had to do with War Assets Corporation.
Mr. ST. LAURENT: I am not in a position to give an answer to the hon. member. The house is master of its own proceedings. It is not the government that makes up the order paper. I do not know the import of the hon. gentleman's question, but I understand it concerns a question which was on the order paper and which has been removed. It has certainly not been removed by any order of the government.
