Gérald Laniel (Deputy Speaker and Chair of Committees of the Whole of the House of Commons)
Mr. Deputy Speaker:
The hon. member's point is, of course, very important. It is one with which the Chair always has difficulty. Hon. members know that we make more progress if we follow the rule of relevancy. It is, of course, difficult to cut deeply between a motion and an amendment. The line is set by members who open the debate to a much broader scope from one speech to the other. It is difficult to ask the Chair at one point in the debate to restrain one particular speaker. However, I would hope that the hon. member will at least once in a while refer to the amendment.
