The Acting Speaker (Mr. Corbin):
Hon. Members will note that there are 13 motions on the Notice Paper at report stage of Bill C-170, an Act to authorize investment in and the provision of financial assistance to the Atlantic Fisheries for the purpose of restructuring fishery enterprises.
The Chair is prepared to rule on the procedural acceptability of these motions. However, if need be, the Chair would give an opportunity to Hon. Members who wish to comment at this stage. Perhaps the Chair could be useful to Hon. Members by indicating in a preliminary way the direction in which the ruling will be made.
There are two motions standing in the name of the Hon. Member for South Shore (Mr. Crouse) which the Chair is prepared to accept; all other motions the Chair is prepared to reject. However, the Chair will hear any Hon. Member who wishes to contribute to the procedure at this time.
