Mr. Speaker, I must say I would probably be opposed to the amendment moved and yet I must also say that in my view the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles) has stated in essence what I thought was the understanding, that is, that hon. members would be able to offer amendments at the report stage in the way in which the hon. member indicated.
I have not had an opportunity to look into this thoroughly, but I notice there is an amendment at the report stage standing in the name of the minister. It would appear to
deal with sections in the act which are not covered by the amending bill. I am referring to amendment No. 2. I may be wrong but it strikes me, on the basis of the reasoning of the Chair, that we must only look at amendments at the report stage which can be related to the amending bill before the House. If that is the case, I wonder whether amendment No. 2 of the minister is in order.
