This amendment seeks to amend section 21 of the Statistics Act. Again, House of Commons Procedure and Practice, Second Edition, states on pages 766 and 767, “an amendment is inadmissible if it proposes to amend a statute that is not before the committee or a section of the parent Act, unless the latter is specifically amended by a clause of the bill.”
Since section 21 of the Stats Act is not being amended by Bill C-36, it is therefore the opinion of the Chair that the amendment is inadmissible.
