Mr. MacNaught:

It would appear to me, Mr. Speaker, that the same purpose could be achieved by voting against the bill as is proposed by the amendment. The amendment says that this bill should not now be read a second time. This purpose could be achieved by voting against the bill. The amendment also refers to consideration being given to the introduction of legislation, but if that legislation were introduced by a private Member it would be out of order. I believe the substantial objection is the fact that the amendment is seeking to achieve something which could be achieved by voting against second reading.
