Edgar Nelson Rhodes (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. E. N. RHODES (Minister of Finance) :

I did not wish to raise a point of order while the leader of the opposition (Mr. Mackenzie King) was putting his question just now, because I knew in any event he would be able to get the leave of the house. But in view of the motion which has just been passed, we are in the orders of the day and therefore 41761-209
we cannot, as would usually be the case, submit questions before the orders of the day are called. I raise this point of order just so that a precedent will not be created, if Your Honour rules, as you should, that it is not now competent to raise questions on the orders of the day.

Topic:   BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE
Subtopic:   QUESTIONS PRECLUDED BY VOTE TO PROCEED TO ORDERS OF THE DAY
