Mr. Power:

Perhaps I have the very citation the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre is referring to, Your Honour. It did come to my ears that there was a question of raising a point of order in connection with the bill standing in my name on the order paper, the same point of order which

has been raised, and I was proposing to refer the subject matter to a standing committee. I find that the House of Commons Journals of Tuesday, March 22, 1949 at page 233, contains the following. Perhaps the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre will tell me if this is the citation to which he refers. I read from the Journals:
The house then resumed the adjourned debate on the proposed motion of Mr. Garson: That Bill No.
86, an act to amend the Continuation of Transitional Measures Act, 1947, be now read the second time, and on the proposed motion of Mr. Fleming in amendment thereto: That the said bill be not now
read the second time, but that the subject matter thereof be referred to the standing committee on banking and commerce with instructions that they have power to recommend a specific measure relating to rent control and other specific measures relating respectively to other matters provided for in the said bill.

Topic:   BRITISH NORTH AMERICA ACT
Subtopic:   AMENDMENT TO READJUST REPRESENTATION IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS
