John Williams Canadian Alliance St. Albert, AB

Mr. Chairman, I ask the President of the Treasury Board to confirm that this bill is in the usual format for an appropriation bill and also that it addresses the ruling of the Speaker of the House of Commons of November 22, when he ruled against vote 10 of Environment Canada and vote 10 of Natural Resources Canada, both in the amount of $50 million each.

Canadian Alliance

John Williams Canadian Alliance St. Albert, AB

Mr. Chairman, I know it is in an unusual format but I specifically asked if it addressed the rulings of the Speaker on November 22.

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2001-02Government Orders

5:55 p.m.

The Chairman

The normal practice, while in committee of the whole, is for officials to also be on the floor assisting the minister. While the question is in order from the perspective of committee of the whole, would it be agreeable to allow the minister to consult with her officials, review the matter and get back to the hon. member. Does the minister have more to add?

Mr. Chairman, if the hon. member is speaking about the ruling on the foundation at natural resources, the answer to his question is no. It will be in the supplementary estimates (B).

Mr. Chairman, I specifically asked if the bill addresses the ruling of the Speaker of the House of Commons of November 22, when he ruled against vote 10 of Environment Canada and vote 10 of Natural Resources Canada, both in the amount of $50 million each.

I thought we would get a yes, but we got a no. I am at loss as to where we stand. Therefore I am looking for some guidance from the Chair.

6 p.m.

The Chairman

I think the answer, while not being the one that might have been anticipated by the hon. member for St. Albert, remains an answer and was a negative one.
