Mr. Speaker, this is far from the first time this type of question has been raised by the hon. member and his colleagues, I believe. The hon. member is, no doubt, aware that last week I gave an overview of the measures taken in the past, starting at the end of the second world war.
Despite what he claims, there is no historical tradition of holding votes every time, or anything of the kind. The contrary is true, moreover. We have instituted a system since our government came into power of holding debates every time there is a military intervention. At the present time, there is not even that, and yet we are holding debates. I am even offering to hold another one tomorrow evening.
