Mr. Speaker, I too am rising on a point of order, in reference to Standing Order 31.
There were some special procedures earlier, so the government decided to infringe upon several rights, particularly members' rights to speak to a bill and Motion No. 25, which cuts debate short. It also infringed on our rights with respect to members' statements, since it allowed only four members to deliver their S.O. 31s. It is also infringing upon the rights of workers with the legislation we will be debating shortly.
I would like to remind members of the House of the rules set out in Standing Order 31 and I would like to know who decided there would be only four statements.
I seek unanimous consent to move the following motion: In order to allow members who were unable to deliver their members' statements, I seek unanimous consent for the House to return, pursuant to Standing Order 31—
