Mr. J. S. WOODSWORTH (Winnipeg North Centre):
I rise to a point of order.
Standing order 116 states:
Except in eases of urgent and pressing necessity, no motion for the suspension or modification of any standing order applying to private bills or petitions for private bills shall be entertained by the house until after reference is made to the committee on standing orders or to one of the committees charged with the consideration of private bills, and a report made thereon by one of such committees.
I submit that under this standing order the motion is out of order.
