Michael Chong Conservative Wellington—Halton Hills, ON

Mr. Speaker, Conservative, Bloc Québécois and New Democratic members of the committee find ourselves in the unusual position of presenting the views of the majority of the committee members in a supplementary report. I note, in general terms, that committee rules allow any MP unlimited time to debate a draft report.

The committee heard expert testimony on the government's failure to repatriate Canadian children trapped in Syria. There are currently 24 Canadian children being detained under life-threatening conditions in northeast Syria who have not been repatriated by the government.

The majority of members of the committee hope the government will act on the recommendations in the supplementary report with respect to these 24 Canadian children.

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present, in both official languages, the second report of the Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, entitled “A Study of Aircraft Certification in Canada in Light of Two Incidents Involving Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302”.

The committee heard from witnesses who had lost family members in the tragic incident involving Ethiopian Airlines flight 302. I extend, on behalf of all committee members, our sincere appreciation for their participation and heartfelt condolences for their loss.

The study reviewed Canada's process in responding to aviation-related incidents.

The committee dedicates this report to the memory of all those who lost their lives on Lion Air flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines flight 302.

Pursuant to Standing Order 109, the committee requests that the government table a comprehensive response to this report.

Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order.

I will remind the House that we have typically had agreement from members to allow these kinds of things. We have done it for their side and they have done it for our side.

Earlier today someone asked to do it for a previous vote. We sort of set a precedent that we would not do that. However, I am quite disappointed to see the government refuse to follow along with the precedent we have been following that if someone makes an honest mistake, we try to give them the opportunity to correct it.

I wish to remind the member for Kingston and the Islands that it is up to the Chair to raise these issues.

The hon. member for Banff—Airdrie is correct in his assessment of what the House has done in the past. I will take a moment to re-ask the question and we will go from there.

All those opposed to the hon. member moving the motion will please say nay.

Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order.

Had the matter not already been resolved? You asked for unanimous consent, did not receive it and then asked the question again. It has to be out of order to ask the question a second time.

The hon. member is challenging the Chair. Because of other decisions made in the past, which I know the hon. member has weighed in on, decisions were reversed. That is why I am asking the question once again.

All those opposed to the hon. member moving the motion will please say nay.

There is a bit of debate going back and forth. If the hon. member is looking to challenge this vote, his point of order is out of order. If it is technical, that is different.
