Mr. Walker:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. There was a definite negative voice on the other side in respect of granting the Parliamentary Secretary the right to speak.

Mr. Walker:

Yes, by the other side of the House. But the point I am trying to make is that there is a vehicle already approved by precedent for discussing this very important subject, a subject on which I would tell the hon. member for Cochrane (Mr. Stewart) that I am in complete agreement in principle. That precedent was established through the way in which my Notice of Motion was handled back in 1966. If this is so, Mr. Speaker, I would suggest you would almost be creating a new rule if you decided that what was done then was not the proper way to deal with this subject matter.

Mr. Walker:

Mr. Speaker, I may be able to contribute something on this point of order. I think you are on fairly safe ground if Your Honour decides to rule, on the basis of precedent, that the bill submitted is in fact out of order. I might also say that I am basing this argument almost on a reversal of precedent. I would refer you, Sir, and the House to Hansard of May 30, 1966, page 5705, when we proved that there is nothing new under the sun. I sponsored a Notice of Motion on this particular subject and at that time there was no discussion in connection with whether or not it came within the rules of the House. In fact, we had an excellent debate on it. However, it was talked out at that time.
