Mr. SPEAKER:

I must accept the hon.

gentleman's word, but the amendment has been repeated so many times that I thought it had been made in connection with this bill.

Mr. W'OODSWORTH: I want to make

sure, Mr. Speaker, that it is moved. I move that the word "now" be struck out and that the following words be added at the end of the question: "on the twelfth of May, 1930."

May I say that there has been no suggestion whatever of coercing the house in this matter?

I expressly stated that I made no charge that Bill No. 20 had been held up. May I refer the hon. member for Yukon (Mr. Black), to the remarks made a few minutes ago by his colleague the hon. member for North Simcoe (Mr. Boys), who suggested that it was next to impossible for a man who had not heard the evidence to judge its weight, and so the hon. member for the Yukon, even as a lawyer, is hardly in a position, having cursorily read the evidence, to assure the house that the case is distinctly proven, and some of us as laymen do not feel ourselves altogether in a position to accept his assurance given under such conditions.

Divorce Bills

May I say that the prolongation of this part of the procedure is not my fault? I suggested that the one motion should be applied to all these bills, in which case the whole matter would have been disposed of in two or three minutes, and an amendment in connection with each bill would not have been necessary. However, objection was raised by some hon. members to that procedure, and so I am compelled on the second reading of each bill to move an amendment. I am not holding up the house. It is those who objected to the procedure that I suggested who are holding up the house.

Mr. SPEAKER:

Shall I say "stand" for

all these other bills? I wish to facilitate the work of the house and lose as little time as possible. I understood the hon. member to state that if his amendment carried he would move it to every other divorce bill, so we might save time if we make it apply automatically. to these other bills and postpone them all until May 12.
