April 18, 1962 (24th Parliament, 5th Session)

PC

Daniel Roland Michener (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Speaker:

The Minister of Veterans Affairs has suggested a motion to pass to private members' business, but I am afraid there is a technical difficulty to accepting the motion. In effect it would be necessary to suspend standing order 15, which regulates our business, and that can only be done on proper notice. The alternative, in the absence of proceeding with the order paper, would be to move that the sitting be suspended until five o'clock.

Topic:   BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE
Subtopic:   REQUEST TO PROCEED WITH PRIVATE MEMBERS' BUSINESS
