Mr. Speaker, these two motions are like the previous two. They are purely technical amendments to Bill C-18, again prompted by the reintroduction of the former Bill C-95, following the prorogation of Parliament.
Clause 35 proposes to replace the reference to former Bill C-7 otherwise known as the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The number of Bill C-7 has been changed to Bill C-8 and the reference must now be changed.
As well, clause 37 proposes to eliminate the reference to Bill C-84, the Regulations Act and to simply refer to a bill.
The department of health bill, having been reintroduced in Parliament before the regulations bill, the numbering of the latter
bill could not have been known at the time and therefore renders this technical amendment necessary.
It is clear that these amendments do not in any way affect the substance of the bill in question. Again, I ask for speedy passage.
