Mr. MacNEIL:

The rule reads:
If objection is taken, the Speaker requests those members who support the motion to rise in their places and if more than twenty members rise accordingly, the Speaker calls upon the member who has asked for leave.
(4) If less than twenty, but not less than five, members rise in their places, the question whether the member has leave to move the adjournment of the house shall be put forthwith, without debate, and determined, if necessary, by a division.
I have stated my objection, and more than five members rose in their places.

Topic:   ADJOURNMENT MOTION TO DISCUSS MATTER OF URGENT PUBLIC IMPORTANCE
