Mr. Reid:

On the point of order, Mr. Speaker, I tend to agree with the hon. member. I think it unfair for reasons outside the purposes of private members' hour, namely, the bill we were considering in normal House time-

Mr. Peters:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. I object to the inference being drawn by the parliamentary secretary. Even if it is true, he cannot say it.

John Mercer Reid (Parliamentary Secretary to the President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Mr. Reid:

Mr. Speaker, I think the hon. member has made sufficient comment on my statement. I assure the hon. member for Lotbiniere (Mr. Fortin) that we are prepared to accommodate him. Unfortunately, we have made commitments to other members for the rest of this week. Presumably the House of Commons will adjourn as of the end of this week. However, if it does not, I will be prepared to give the hon. member priority come the following week, should the House of Commons be sitting. In addition, I am also prepared to give him priority, if it is not possible that week, in the first week when the House of Commons resumes. I regret the embarrassment that has been caused to the hon. member.

Mr. Fox:

It seems that members are leaving the House right now, which reduces the possibility for us of having a quorum.

I thank hon. members for the patience displayed in this instance. I am advised that it is my duty to inform hon. members that the House is adjourned until 2 p.m. tomorrow. I am further requested to advise hon. members that the 19 members, including myself, who were present when the count was taken should present themselves to the Table in order that their names may be recorded.

I do now leave the chair until 2 p.m. tomorrow.

At 5.35 p.m. the House adjourned for want of a quorum.
