Mr. Pickersgill:

Mr. Chairman, may I say a further word on the point of order. I was not arguing or criticizing anything. I was drawing attention to the fact that the hon. gentleman had not mentioned the clause of this particular bill; that he was talking about a number of other cases. I was just suggesting that the same rules should be applied in one case as in another. I might add, since the hon. gentleman who has just spoken is, of course, so much more experienced than some of the rest of us, that in committee stage of a bill it is not a question of advocacy; it is a question of examining the clauses. The advocacy is done in the house, not in committee. In committee we examine the clauses and stick strictly to the clauses. At any rate, that is what the rules say.
