Order, please. With all due respect to the hon. member, the committee now has before it consideration of clause 2 of the estimates. The hon. member for South West Nova has the floor. Before the adjournment last night I understand there was an agreement, as recorded in Hansard, concerning the ministers who would be present today. I am not privy to any other details of that agreement except that the Chair has taken note of the fact that certain ministers, by arrangement, would be present in the House, and two of those ministers are here at the present time. It seems to me the Chair has no other course than to recognize the hon. member for South West Nova and she has the right to place whatever matters she wishes before the committee at this point.
