Gage Workman Montgomery

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Montgomery:

Mr. Speaker, the reason I am asking for unanimous consent in order to have the fourth report of the committee concurred in today is that it has been the experience of the committee that the members thereof spend 10 or 15 minutes on some occasions waiting until there is a quorum. Several committees are meeting simultaneously, and some members of this committee also serve on other committees. At the last meeting of our committee it was unanimously decided among the members present, representing all parties, that we would ask leave of the house to reduce our quorum from 15 to 10.
I move, seconded by the hon. member for Bruce (Mr. Robinson):
That the fourth report of the standing committee on veterans affairs presented this day be now concurred in.
That report would simply have the effect of reducing the quorum from 15 to 10.
