Mr. Speaker, I know that there have been discussions among the parliamentary leaders concerning the emergency debate this evening.
I would like to ask the government House leader if it would not be possible to consider that eventuality after the question I am about to ask of you relating to the necessity of an emergency debate on another matter.
I have not had the opportunity to discuss this with the government House leader, but we are aware that all these matters need to be addressed within the next few days.
I will not therefore be able to give my consent at this time. I would prefer it to be considered a little later, after we have been able to hold discussions.
