PC

Edmund Davie Fulton

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fulion:

Mr. Chairman, I have outlined the approach which some of us think should be taken toward any revision of the rules for the purpose that if a further revision is undertaken we shall have these views on the record. We are accepting the report before you, to which we are agreeing. We are accepting the limitations of the rules, therein recommended, for the reason I have indicated, that it is in the circumstances a compromise to which we are prepared to agree; but we wish it to be clearly understood we do not think it is the proper principle upon which to base an approach to any further revision of the rules of the house.

Topic:   SECOND REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON PROCEDURE
