Jim Karygiannis Scarborough—Agincourt, ON

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I want to clarify with the member across the way what minister she is talking about. When the question is put to the New Democratic Party, what minister is the member actually—

The Deputy Speaker

I think the hon. member for Macleod was referring to the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre. He meant to say member and he said minister. I believe that was the mistake that was made. Perhaps the hon. member for Macleod wishes to clarify the point.

Grant Hill Macleod, AB

Mr. Speaker, if I made a mistake and called the member minister—maybe in another life. I did mean member. I was speaking of the Minister of Health having received this information.

The Deputy Speaker

I trust that clears the matter up.

I would like to speak about the amendment moved earlier by the hon. member, just before the speech by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre. It is the Chair's opinion that the amendment is in order.

Therefore, the next time the bill is considered by the House, the debate will be on the amendment.

It being 5.30 p.m., the House will now proceed to the taking of several deferred recorded divisions.

Call in the members.

The Speaker

Mrs. Lalonde moved that this House condemn the government for blatant unfairness to Quebec in the matter of the GST, the government having denied it compensation without letting it submit its arguments to an independent arbitration panel made up of three experts, the first to be appointed by the federal government, the second by the Government of Quebec and the third jointly by the first two.

Ms. Alarie moved that the motion be amended by deleting the word “blatant” and substituting the following therefor: “flagrant”.

The question is on the amendment.

(The House divided on the amendment, which was negatived on the following division:)
