Progressive Conservative

Mr. Churchill:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on another point of order. I understand fully that last Tuesday the minister gave notice of this particular motion, and that it appeared in Votes and Proceedings to which I drew attention yesterday. However, it does not appear on today's order paper. I wonder, sir, whether you would give a ruling on this question. Is it permissible simply to give notice of motion

Proposal for Time Allocation and then, without following the normal custom of the house, to move the motion verbally the next day or some subsequent day without anything appearing on the order paper for the information of members? I am not sure there is any rule governing this procedure, but the custom of the house over the years has prevented members of the house from being taken by surprise.

Topic:   BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE
Subtopic:   MOTION FOR TIME ALLOCATION RESPECTING DEFENCE ACT AMENDMENT
