Mr. George A. Drew (Leader of ihe Opposition):

I rise on a question of privilege. On Friday last I raised a question about the calling of the standing committee on privileges and elections, but I was in error in referring to that committee. What I intended to refer to was the motion moved on April 18 by the Secretary of State (Mr. Bradley) for the setting up of a special committee "to study the several amendments to the Dominion Elections Act, 1938, and amendments thereto, suggested by the chief electoral officer"; the motion then went on to enlarge upon the subjects to be considered. In view of the fact that that motion for a special committee was presented over a month ago by a member of the government, and was agreed to, may I ask the Secretary of State when it is his intention to call the committee together?
