would ask the hon. member for Lapointe to kindly resume his seat.
With regard to the point of order raised by the Minister of Public Works, I had started to ask whether I should report the resolution but failed to see the hon. member for Lapointe. The hon. member had risen so I now recognize him. I understand he wishes to move an amendment to the resolution.
Mr. Chairman, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Sherbrooke (Mr. Allard):
That the resolution be amended so that the two-twelfths of the amount of $26,086,000 provided for vote No. 15 of the Department of National Defence, for the purchase of bombs, be reduced to $1, in order to enable the Minister of Agriculture to meet the just demands of the Canadian dairy producers.
Motion agreed to.
Resolution reported and concurred in.
