Hon. W. S. FIELDING (Shelburne and Queen's) :
If I might be permitted on the point of order, while the general ground as stated by my right hon. friend is correct, I think the rules of the House permit an expression of abstract opinion that does not in itself call for public expenditure, and I am inclined to think, and I submit it for your consideration, Mr. Speaker, that the resolution of the hon. gentleman comes within that rule
that it does not call for an expenditure of public money. On the merits of the question I do not wish to say anything at all. I just wish to submit that thought for your consideration on the point of order.
