Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. On the previous vote, prior to this one, we were told that there were 168 votes for and 138 against. That is 306, according to my calculations.I think that at least two or three members were not present, and I do not think you, Mr. Speaker, were allowed to vote. The member next to me did not vote. I would ask you, Mr. Speaker, to please check the vote count.

We have checked the vote. I was about to announce that the vote should have been 163 in favour and I believe 138 opposed on the previous question. I want to thank the hon. member for his assistance in this regard.

Accordingly, the bill stands referred to a legislative committee.
