Mr. Speaker, there have been consultations among all the parties and I think and hope you would find unanimous consent for the following motion. I move:

That, notwithstanding any Standing Order or usual practices of the House, Bill C-33, An Act to amend the War Veterans Allowance Act, be deemed to have been read a second time and referred to a Committee of the Whole, deemed considered in Committee of the Whole, deemed reported without amendment, deemed concurred in at the report stage and deemed read a third time and passed.

I draw attention of the House to the words “without amendment” because there was some issue about whether it was going to be amended or not. It is not amended.
