Progressive Conservative

Mr. Horner (Crowfoot):

No, Mr. Speaker. My reason is that other members of parliament who do not happen to be here this Friday afternoon are also interested in the debate and should be given an opportunity to participate. If they had known the debate would continue, I am sure they would have been here. Since they are not here, I do not think we should take it upon ourselves to exclude them from contributing to the debate.

Since there is not unanimous consent, the Chair will call it four o'clock. The House will now proceed to the consideration of private members' business as listed on today's order paper, namely, notices of motions, public bills, private bills.

Maurice Brydon Foster (Parliamentary Secretary to the President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Mr. Foster:

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, there are a couple of private members who have bills before the House to change the name of their ridings, namely, Bill C-277 and Bill C-281. I wonder whether we might deal with those two bills before going on to the notice of motion standing in the name of the hon. member for Moncton (Mr. Thomas). I think there is general agreement to do this, if it could be put to the House.

Mr. Thomas (Moncton):

On the point of order, Mr. Speaker, I am quite prepared to accommodate the hon. members who have private bills, but on the understanding that it will be a very short debate and that we can then proceed with the debate that has been scheduled.

Mr. Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to make the same condition. We are prepared to agree to this, but I think in fairness to the hon. member for Moncton (Mr. Thomas) it should be on the understanding that we put those two bills through their various stages without debate.

On the point of order, Mr. Speaker, this is quite agreeable. I want to assure Your Honour and the House that in the absence of the hon. member for Middlesex (Mr. Frank) I have his written consent to move the bill on his behalf.
