Mr. J. W. KENNEDY (Glengarry and Stormont):

Mr. Speaker, in respect to the

ruling that you have just given to the House, may I say that I have the greatest respect for your knowledge of parliamentary procedure and customs, and also for the authorities which you have quoted in this regard. Your

IMr. Speaker.]

ruling, and rulings of a similar nature which have been made in previous sessions, I am led to understand have been based not so much on any particular rule of our House, as on precedents and practices which have grown up in the years gone by, and have established themselves as recognized) traditions and customs which we should follow. But may I point out what you have already observed, Sir, that a condition now exists and has existed in this House for the last five or six years which did not exist at the time those customs were becoming established. For that reason, and also for one other, that the subject matter of the amendment offered by my hon. leader (Mr. Forke), as compared with what was offered by the Acting Minister of Finance (Mr. Robb), or by the eix-Minister of Finance (Sir Henry Drayton), challenges my supreme confidence and respect, I could wish that after taking this subamendment into your consideration you had allowed it to stand. However, I appreciate the hope you have held out to us that at some future time subamendments of this kind may be permitted to be moved. If I may do so without seeming discourteous to yourself, Sir, I should like to appeal to the judgment of the House from the ruling you have just given.
