Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. Just so that we are clear, I can understand that when we are having exchanges during the question and comment period, we are trying to find out and clarify positions of different parties. I think it is important that when someone speaks from one particular party that they do not also ask questions of their own member, at least not at first. The prerogative should be for others to have an opportunity.
It seems to me that on occasion it is important for parties on all sides of the House to flesh out ideas, concepts. It gives us the chance to find out what the positions are. It is not just an opposition-government thing at all.
