Lucien Lamoureux (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Independent

Mr. Speaker:

The hon. member for Sainte-Marie will appreciate, as I stated a moment ago, that on many occasions I have given my own interpretation of this Standing Order and I have never interpreted it as being a new application of Standing Order 26 which, as the House is aware, was changed in 1968. Besides, Order 43 which dates back to 1867, should allow hon. members to submit urgent motions without any previous notice as normally acquired.
It is only under such extreme circumstances that hon. members should resort to Standing Order 43. This is the way I have always interpreted it.
[Mr. Lambert (Bellechasse).l
