Mr. Harris:

Before you leave the chair, Mr. Speaker, may I have the unanimous consent of the house to revert to motions in order to correct a minor error that was made in a motion some days ago. I have explained it to some of my hon. friends and I think they agree.

Mr. Harris:

In the motion which was passed on Monday, January 17, constituting the committee on procedure, at that time the following words were omitted: "notwithstanding the provisions of standing order 65". By way of explanation I may say that means that the members who were appointed at that time to sit on the committee were in excess of the 15 provided by that standing order. Therefore I ask leave to move that those words, "notwithstanding the provisions of standing order 65", be added to the motion which was then made by the hon. member for Portage-Neepawa (Mr. Weir).
