Mr. David Lewis (York South):
Mr. Speaker, in the absence of the Secretary of State who is supposed to be here I should like to direct this question to the right hon. Prime Minister. If I may say so, I think the Prime Minister and other members know I have supported the official languages bill and the bilingualism policy without any hesitation. In view of that I should like to ask the Prime Minister whether there was any discussion and consideration of what happened here on July 1 in Ottawa, and was it deliberately decided to have the affair here in Ottawa conducted mostly or almost entirely in one official language rather than in both?
