David Dingwall LiberalMinister of Health

The government remains committed to dealing with the serious problem of family violence. Health Canada's goal is to reduce the incidence of family violence. The department's approach includes both short and long-term elements: Health Canada will continue to operate the National Clearinghouse on Family Violence, to offer training and education to frontline workers, to enhance the security of emergency shelters and to improve the legislative framework related to situations of family violence. At the same time, under the population health approach, Health Canada will focus on preventing family violence in the long term by expanding its understanding of the conditions that lead to violence or that increase the risks of violence and by acting on that knowledge.

Mr. Speaker, since question period I have been a little disturbed by the lack of attendance in the Chamber. I notice that a quorum is not present. I wonder if you might call for a quorum at this time.

Mr. Speaker, at the very moment when you put the question on Bill C-60, we had a member who was in his place and was supposed to speak, but he was not recognized.

I wish someone would explain what happened. According to procedure, a Liberal was scheduled to speak before our member, and our member was in his place-you saw him come in and go to his seat-but he was not recognized.

I would ask the Chair to let us go back and resume debate on Bill C-60.

Mr. Speaker, I listened carefully to what my hon. colleague said. In fact there was no member in his place at the time that the question was put. I would respectfully put to the Chair that the question was duly called and passed at the time. I would respectfully suggest to the hon. member that the matter has been dealt with and is closed.
