Before we resume debate, in the questions and comments period in the future we are going to try to give a few more people an opportunity to ask questions. By doing that if there is an indication, during the debate or during the initial presentation, of a great interest in speaking, if members would indicate to the Chair your interest in asking a question, the Chair will then have some idea how many people are interested in intervening. Or if hon. members stand initially we can figure out in our minds how much time should be reserved for each intervention and each response.
For instance, if five people stand, then there might be five one minute interventions and one minute responses. This would give all hon. members a better chance to speak on issues. This is something we are going to try to work out much as we have done in question period since the beginning of this Parliament to see if we can work this into debate as well. There is no intention to make this a hard and fast rule. We have to try to live with the feeling and the mood of the House at the time. Just so people know, it might make things more interesting in the House.
On a point of order, the hon. member for St. Albert.
