Mr. BEODEUE.

I am dealing now with the form of procedure. The question of the standing orders of this House is a most important one, and one which should be dealt with after it has been considered by a committee of this House which can give it mature judgment and deliberation. There is no standing rule as to the manner in which we should make our rules, but Bouri-not and May and all the parliamentary authorities lay it down that no rules of the House should be amended until they have been considered in committee. .

Topic:   SUPPLY-FISHERIES COMMISSION.
Subtopic:   REPRESENTATION OF QUEBEC EAST AND OTTAWA.
