Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I have been in this House since the voting started last night. I have seen all sorts of things happening. What has just happened is the House of Commons game. Members have to answer questions when the time is right, and they have to face the consequences of their mistakes.

I feel the need to point out that, when one of our members was not in his seat last night—he was in the House but not in his seat—we lost a motion, namely Motion No. 84. What has happened just now is that the Liberals were asleep at the switch, and I think they ought to live with the consequences.

Your slowness in acknowledging that they were not standing casts somewhat of a shadow over your impartiality, Madam Speaker.

The Acting Speaker (Ms. Thibeault)

Order, please. I can assure the hon. member that I saw four Liberal members on their feet here, plus one more right at the back of the room. He was standing, right at the back. So, there were five in all.

Order, please. I will not accept the behaviour of the member whose riding I shall not name for the moment. I caution the hon. member that, if he does not calm down, I shall take the necessary steps.
