Mr. Speaker, I acknowledge the hon. member's interest in the subject and I am grateful for the question.
As the hon. member has pointed out, some months have now passed since we have received the report of the Senate committee which discloses how difficult members of that committee found the issues. There was difficulty achieving consensus on some of the most fundamental questions that arose. It is now up to the government to determine where we go from here and how. It is also up to this caucus to discuss how the issue should be approached.
That having been said, I have long since expressed my preference for providing a process within which elected members of Parliament can bring their judgment to bear, as the Prime Minister has said, in a free vote on these questions.
My response to the hon. member is that this caucus in due course will consider how best to proceed from here so that these important issues can be brought forward for consideration.
