Progressive Conservative

Mr. Baker (Grenville-Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, I have a point of order which I should like to put forward while the Minister of Finance (Mr. Chretien) is in the House. It has been brought to my attention by someone outside the House that the bill he introduced yesterday has not as yet been distributed. It is an important bill, and I understand the government House leader regards it as having some priority. Perhaps the Minister of Finance has some comment on this. The fact is that the bill has not been distributed as yet. If we are going to go ahead with it tomorrow, I think it would have to be distributed within the next hour. I suppose that if we are not going to go ahead with it tomorrow, there would be time. I just warn the minister.
