Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Robertson:

On a point of Order. In accordance with what is, I believe, the procedure of this House, I raised in a small Committee this week the question of suspending the Rule to-day, having regard to the fact that there would be so many Members who would want to speak in this Debate. It was raised by members of that small Committee at the largest Committee in the House yesterday, and they agreed to approach the usual channels, and a Motion appeared on the Order Paper to-day to that effect. Can you advise me, Colonel Clifton Brown, why that Motion for the suspension of the Rule has not been put into effect?
