Mr. Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, before we call it ten o'clock I wonder if I might raise a point of order with respect to the grouping of some of the motions that are ahead of us which Your Honour announced a short while ago. You will recall that it was suggested that motions Nos. 13, 14 15 and 16 should be grouped for debate. You did indicate that there could be separate votes on 13 and 14 and that then a vote on 15 that would cover 16.
The point I wish to make is that the substance of motion No. 14 goes in the opposite direction from some of the others in that group. For the same reason, this afternoon the Chair was willing to separate No. 5 on the one hand from Nos. 6, 7, 8 and 9 on the other. I should like to ask that motion No. 14 stand by itself both for debate and for the vote.
