Reform

John Williams Reform St. Albert, AB

Mr. Speaker, before you call it 1.30 p.m., I think you will find that there is unanimous consent for the hon. member for Calgary Southwest to sponsor Bill C-341 instead of Motion No. 259 on the order of precedence.

SupplyRoutine Proceedings

1:10 p.m.

The Deputy Speaker

The House has heard the proposition of the hon. member for St. Albert. Is there unanimous consent to allow him to move the motion he has just made?

Mr. Speaker, could someone explain to me the consequences of changing the order of priority?

1:10 p.m.

The Deputy Speaker

It is up to the member for St. Albert to do so.

Does the hon. member for St. Albert wish to clarify the matter for his colleague?

Reform

John Williams Reform St. Albert, AB

Mr. Speaker, the clarification is that there have been some resignations in the House and in order to maintain the order of precedence I have brought forward the request for unanimous consent to make the changes on the order of precedence.

No, no. Consent has not been given.

Bloc

Stéphane Bergeron Bloc Verchères, QC

Shall we continue with the opposition day debate, Mr. Speaker? That is the subject of my speech.

Before we call it 1.30 p.m., perhaps we could see whether there are other speakers on this question among our colleagues, before we go on to other things.

SupplyRoutine Proceedings

1:10 p.m.

The Deputy Speaker

I fully understand what the member is trying to say, but, unfortunately, or fortunately, the Standing Orders provide that the vote must be taken at 1.15 p.m., and that is why we had to have it then.

We seem to be in the doldrums. If we can declare it 1.30 p.m. now, we can proceed with private members' business. Otherwise, we are obliged to find something else to deal with for ten minutes.

Reform

John Williams Reform St. Albert, AB

Mr. Speaker, unfortunately I have to admit I was not paying too much attention, but our speaker is not here and I was wondering if you could suspend the House for a few minutes until we are ready to bring our speaker forward.

I apologize, Mr. Speaker, we have a member from the great province of British Columbia who is prepared to speak on the motion.
