May 14, 1964 (26th Parliament, 2nd Session)


Lucien Lamoureux (Deputy Speaker and Chair of Committees of the Whole of the House of Commons)


Mr. Deputy Speaker:

If no additional comments are forthcoming with regard to whether or not the proposed amendment is in order the Chair is prepared to make a ruling. I feel that the proposed amendment is out of order because it is not relevant to the matter now before the house. I would simply refer hon. members to May, sixteenth edition, page 554, where it says that an amendment is out of order if it is irrelevant to the subject matter or beyond the scope of the bill. This amendment deals with matters relevant, I suggest, to the administration of the Deparment of National Revenue and not relevant to the bill now before us. With regret I must therefore say that the amendment is out of order.
