Unionist

Mr. DOHERTY:

Although I may be in charge of the Bill, the hon. member for North Simcoe has the same right to express his view of the question whether we ought to proceed as the hon. member for Three Rivers (Mr. Bureau) has. I think, however, we all desire to adopt that course that will be most conducive to business being put through promptly and at the same time receiving proper consideration. If hon. gentlemen feel that it is not consistent with those requirements that we should continue this morning, I have no desire to insist against the wish of the committee generally. If that be the wish of the committee, I would have no objection to the committee rising and reporting progress. I would be glad to be able to report more progress before we rise, but I do not desire to insist against the general wish of the committee.
