moved for leave to introduce Bill C-444, an act to amend the Criminal Code (judicial review).
Mr. Speaker, in the last parliament I introduced a similar bill which had the effect of repealing section 745 of the criminal code. As hon. members know, that section allows convicted killers, in particular those convicted of first and second degree murder, to have their parole ineligibility dates reduced.
The bill received the consent of parliament at second reading in the last parliament. In light of the fact that parliament has already adopted the bill at second reading, I ask that you seek unanimous consent of the House to have this bill sent directly to the justice committee.
