Mr. Speaker:

I recognize the point of what the hon. member for Rosetown-Biggar (Mr. Coldwell) has said with respect to those who have spoken on the motion for an address in reply to the speech from the throne. But I would point out that most of those who have spoken-in fact, this statement applies with few exceptions-have spoken on the amendment to the amendment. There will therefore be given to practically all the members of this

house an opportunity to speak on the main amendment and on the motion. I feel satisfied that there will be an early opportunity for hon. members to speak on this matter.
As I said, I informed another hon. member today that a motion under standing order 31 should be made immediately before orders of the day are called. Under the circumstances, and this is in no way to be taken as a precedent, I am going to allow the hon. member to make his motion.

Topic:   WAR VETERANS ALLOWANCES
Subtopic:   MOTION FOR ADJOURNMENT UNDER STANDING ORDER 31
