Mr. Borden:

I do not think it is a debatable

motion.

After that, a certain amount of discussion took place and the chairman was obliged to make a ruling, which hon. members will find in column 9338 of that same volume of Hansard. The chairman said:

I rule that the previous question cannot be put with reference to the motion now before the house because the motion is undebatable.

From that ruling, that the motion was undebatable, an appeal was taken, and hon. members will find the result of that appeal in columns 9339 and 9340.

Mr. HOWDEN:

The trend of the debate . lately has made me wonder whether there are adequate safeguards in this bill to ensure the proper maintenance of the children after the allowances are paid. If I may say so, being a medical man I have been in many homes in my life, and I do not think that in every case one can depend on the children being properly maintained unless there is supervision of some kind to see that they are. I can even conceive of a family saving the money and letting the children go wanting to a certain extent. It seems to me there should be adequate safeguards, whether in the bill or somewhere else, which would ensure the' proper maintenance of the children as a result of government expenditure on these allowances.
