This is somewhat in the nature of a point of order, Mr. Chairman. I would draw your attention to the fact that, although what you have stated with regard to there not being a rule which permits general discussion on section 1, may be correct, it has been the custom which has grown up in this house over many years, and of which the party now in power, made considerable use when in opposition. I could cite a good many instances to that effect. If it is a matter of convenience to the house; if it is something which will not unduly delay the passage of the measure, I suggest to you, Mr. Chairman, that it would be a wise thing to take some note of this precedent which has grown up.
