Mr. Speaker, I am a little puzzled. There was no point of order raised. There was no one questioning the speech of the member for Langley—Abbotsford. There was no interruption. There was no point of privilege, order or anything else. I do not understand why Mr. Speaker chose to read to us from Beauchesne's when no one has protested or found anything wrong with the speech just made.
I do not think it is a good precedent for the Chair to be instructing members when no one in this place has found anything wrong with the speech was just made. I urge the Speaker to remember that he can rule on points of order. He can interpret precedents for us. But to try to instruct members of the House and members of the opposition on what kind of speeches to make or when to make them, I think Mr. Speaker should be very careful about setting that kind of precedent.
