Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPROTJLE.

Now, Sir, are private Bills government orders or are we about to make a private Bill a government measure or a government order ? If not, then we are transcending the authority granted by the House on motion of the leader of the House in regard to the business it is proposed to adopt at this sitting. The point I take is, that we have no right under this resolution to proceed with the consideration of private Bills because this day has been taken by motion on the part of the government for the purpose of attending to and proceeding with government business.
