Mr. Small:

My only reason for posing the question at the present time, Mr. Chairman, is that it has a great bearing on this matter, and probably it would remove the necessity for a great deal of discussion if we could have these figures beforehand. After you get through with the down payment, the cost is amortized over a 30-year period. The lending companies, or those who are going to supply the money for the building of homes, set a rate and you must have an assured income of so much per year. Having regard to the rates that have been set, whether it is on a 20-year or 30-year amortization plan, there is no workingman who can comply with the demands of the lending companies.

I should therefore like to have the information during the interval in order that we might study it further. We might then be able to see whether the recommendation made by the minister comes within the ambit of what the man who is earning an ordinary salary can afford to pay for a home.

Mr. Small:

Mr. Speaker, with relation to what took place earlier and your explanation with respect to the representative of Her Majesty the Queen in the person of His Excellency the Governor General, may I say that I accept your explanation with respect to the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod presenting himself to this house.

As far as I am concerned that is all right, but having regard to the supremacy of this house, which has been contested most strenuously in days gone by, I want to place myself on record as agreeing with the hon. member for Temiscouata (Mr. Pouliot) that hereafter when such person presents himself to this house he should have the consent of the Speaker before entering.

A member on this side of the house was interrupted. We should preserve the ancient rights of this assembly and remember that when an individual presented himself to the English house long ago and asked for Mr. Pym, he did not receive the recognition of the Speaker. I think in future that should be our guide, and that before anyone enters you must give your consent.
