Mr. Patterson:

Mr. Speaker, I would suggest that the hon. member for Eglinton is jumping to conclusions. The amendment proposed by the hon. member for Okanagan-Revelstoke has not yet been ruled out of order.

Mr. Deputy Speaker:

As I understand it the hon. gentleman wishes to withdraw his amendment. It is quite apparent to me that the wish of the house is to grant him that leave, and perhaps we could terminate the discussion on that basis. Has the hon. member for Okanagan-Revelstoke leave to withdraw his amendment?

Mr. Hahn:

Mr. Speaker, in view of the

fact that this is going to be a time consuming process and in view of the fact that we do wish to see the legislation affecting British Columbia passed I would suggest that as we have this antipathy among our Conservative friends to the inclusion of the amendment moved by the hon. member for Okanagan-Revelstoke the hon. member withdraw his amendment on his own instigation and we will be prepared to go ahead and move it later.

Mr. Fleming:

It is a word which I think is quite capable of totally misrepresenting the position here. We are here to see that the rules of the house are upheld. There is no occasion for suggesting that there is antipathy toward the subject matter on our part in suggesting that the rules of the house ought to

Mr. McLeod:

Mr. Speaker, I had been trying to list some objections that we have to the bill and we got into a little bit of difficulty. I still have my amendment in front of me but I will not continue with it. I understand that it is felt that these difficulties can be ironed out, and if we can have such an assurance from the Minister of National Health and Welfare I will be glad to listen to him at this time.

I can tell my hon. friend that I am hopeful the matters he has raised are matters which can be ironed out in the negotiations concerning the agreement and regulations if there is mutual acceptance by the federal and provincial governments, and I assure my hon. friend that we will endeavour to do that when the time of negotiation comes.
