Mr. Speaker, prior to the tabling of the minister's statement, I would like to make you aware that by agreement of the House leaders we had hoped to have a copy of the statement three hours prior to its introduction in the House.
That was not forthcoming and we are very concerned. We understand this is a new process for a new government. We wish to be most co-operative, but we would expect more notice and to have these statements brought to our attention sooner in the future. If it does not happen then we will be bringing it to your attention, Mr. Speaker.
