Liberal

Mr. MURPHY.

I would like to direct your attention, Mr. Speaker, to one feature of this rule which so far has not been commented on. It may be that a question is asked and not starred, and for some reason or other that question could be more conveniently answered by putting it in the form of a motion for a return. As I understand your interpretation of the new rule, a question of that kind which is not starred would remain indefinitely on the Order Paper unanswered. I would like to ask your view, Mr. Speaker, on that point?

Topic:   QUESTIONS-PROCEDURE.
