Before I put the next question, I would like to remind hon. members of a rule that apparently has been forgotten.

Standing Order 16(1) of the House states:

When the Speaker is putting a question, no Member shall enter, walk out of or across the House, or make any noise or disturbance.

The House resumed from May 10 consideration of the motion.
