Madam Speaker, I had indicated to the table clerks my desire to raise a point of order before debate was resumed.

There has been consultation among all the parties and I believe that you would find unanimous consent, in connection with Bill C-230, a private member's bill introduced by the hon. member for Manicouagan, for the order to be discharged and the bill withdrawn.

There is consent among all parties on this.

Ghislain Fournier Bloc Manicouagan, QC

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-230, An Act to amend the Canada Labour Code and the Public Service Staff Relations Act (scabs and essential services).

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to again introduce my bill.

This bill would prohibit the hiring of persons to replace employees of an employer under the Canada Labour Code who are on strike or locked out or employees of the public service who are on strike. This bill is also aimed at ensuring that essential services are maintained in the event of a strike in the public service.

I hope there will be a debate on this bill at last, and I also hope to be able to convince my parliamentary colleagues to pass it, since I feel it is essential to the defence of these workers.
