I have much sympathy for this motion, and I will support it. I would have preferred that we do each particular reference separately as it came in and then were able to provide 48 hours' notice for each, but the principle remains the same and is a good principle.
Ironically, Elizabeth May, in her letter, speaks to this being a motion to restrict the rights of MPs. It's actually exactly the opposite. This is a motion that gives independent members the right to make amendments that they would otherwise not be able to make at committee.
What it prevents is one member of the House of Commons, as has happened in the past, namely Elizabeth May, tying up the entire House of Commons for days, and literally overnight, with endless voting on motions that are brought about not with the objective of having them seriously debated but rather that of simply tying up the House in endless voting through the nights. The basis for that was that those amendments were not able to be made at committee. That was the basis for them being compelled to be voted on at report stage.
This gives the opportunity for independents to participate fully through proposing those amendments at the committee level and, as such, it is a sensible approach for the orderly management of our business here and in the House.
