Mr. Lambert (Edmonton West):
A point of order, Mr. Speaker. As I indicated at the beginning of my remarks, my colleague from Fundy-Royal (Mr. Fairweather) is necessarily away this afternoon but we received word that he will be back here during the supper hour. Rather than moving that the House agree to a withdrawal of his motion, since we are agreed on the minister's proposal, I wonder whether we might defer the motion so that the hon. member can withdraw it. I think he will agree to do this, but I would not want to do it on his behalf. We do not want to dispose of his motion at the present time if he is going to withdraw it. I am merely asking that we defer the matter until his return at eight o'clock, when I think it will be very satisfactorily resolved and we can then take action on the minister's amendment.
