Lucien Lamoureux (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Independent

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. In raising his point of order the hon. member himself has said that he cannot question the ruling of the Chair. I know what the hon. member has in mind and I can assure him I appreciate the fact that in some circumstances a continuing situation may reach a point where perhaps the general rule should be discarded. The situation might then be considered a matter of sudden emergency, to the extent that the motion should be allowed. As I say, I appreciate the point made by the hon. member for Nanaimo-Cowichan-The Islands. I assure him that it will always be one of the considerations taken into account by the Chair when similar motions are presented to the house.

Topic:   MOTION TO ADJOURN UNDER S.O. 26 LABOUR CONDITIONS ALLEGED FAILURE OF GOVERNMENT TO COPE WITH UNEMPLOYMENT-MOTION TO ADJOURN UNDER STANDING ORDER 26
