Mr. Speaker:

The hon. member can do this only with the unanimous consent of the House. It is the practice that a private bill cannot be moved by another member in the absence of the mover of the bill unless there is unanimous agreement. The assumption is that the hon. member is doing this with the consent of the hon. member in whose name the bill stands on the Order Paper. Is this agreed?

Mr. Goode:

Mr. Speaker, it is indeed a pleasure to explain the purpose of this bill for my colleague from Okanagan Boundary who this week is immersed at St. Johns, Quebec.

The purpose of this bill is to improve the method of search for and rescue of disabled aircraft. At present it costs the federal government over $7 million each year for search and rescue operations. The bill is intended both to reduce costs and save lives.
