Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Barnett:

Mr. Chairman, on the point of order raised by the hon. member for Bonavista-Twillingate, I was listening closely to the remarks of the hon. member for Timis-kaming. While it is true that he did make reference to the fact that investigators were used in various cases, I felt that he was leading directly to an assessment of the particular bill before us and that he was merely comparing the manner in which investigators were used in this case with what was a general practice in connection with such

Divorce Bills
bills. With all deference to the remarks made by the hon. member for Bonavista-Twillingate, I submit that his point of order is not well taken. I think the hon. member for Timiskaming was relating his discussion to the question whether or not it was advisable for this bill to pass through the committee stage at this time.
