February 25, 1902 (9th Parliament, 2nd Session)


James Clancy

Conservative (1867-1942)


I think there is a disposition on this side of the House to take as little time as is absolutley necessary to have some intelligent discussion. I hardly thought for a moment that the hon. gentleman (Mr. Fisher) would urge, that the reports having been placed for three or four days in the hands of hon. members on this side of the House was a reason for proceeding at once. Unless they are more apt than 1 think hon. members of this House are, we will be able to have nothing like intelligent criticism. Time would be saved if a reasonable opportunity were given to members to look into these reports. We are in the early days of the session, and while I value the importance of doing some work each day, yet it would be better to have the criticism an intelligent one.
