Mr. Browne (St. John's West):
Mr. Speaker, I draw your attention to section 418 of Beau-chesne, fourth edition, at page 288 which reads as follows:
The question for the third reading is put immediately after the report from the committee of the whole. All amendments which may be moved on a second reading of a bill may be moved on the third reading with the restriction that they cannot deal with any matter which is not contained in the bill. On the second reading of a bill, an amendment may be moved expressing opinions as to any circumstances connected with its introduction or prosecution, or seeking further information in relation to the bill by committees or commissioners.
Canadian National Railways the production of papers or other evidence, or the opinion of judges. This cannot be done on the third reading because it is not directly connected with any provision of the bill.
Therefore, I suggest that such an amendment as the hon. member proposes is out of order.
