Mr. Speaker, on a point of order. I think it would be a good idea for you to enlighten the House at this time. I have heard a number of Liberal members wondering whether one of our colleagues wearing a turtle neck is entitled to vote.

I tell them he is entitled to vote, but they stubbornly insist—

The Deputy Speaker

All members in the House are always entitled to vote. I have heard no mention of this. We will therefore continue with the votes.

Mr. Speaker, in order to enlighten this House I raise a point of order. I ask you whether a colleague in this House wearing a turtle neck is entitled to vote.

Division No. 794
Government Orders

1:50 a.m.

The Deputy Speaker

I am well aware that it is late, but if I remember what the Speaker said the last time we discussed this matter, we decided that a tie is not required for a member to vote in the House.

I think this is how we decided. It is fairly late and perhaps a little too late to look at all the precedents on this. Perhaps tomorrow we can no doubt look at this.

I cannot recognize the member for Bonaventure—Gaspé—Îles-de-la-Madeleine—Pabok for the moment.

The next question is on Motion No. 37.
