Mr. Herbert:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. The first item of business is notices of motions (papers). As you have correctly stated, there are no items on the order paper at the present time under notices of motions (papers). I do not think this point should be lost as there are over two dozen notices of motions for the production of papers that have been on the order paper since the start of this session. The government has introduced an access to information bill. The government does not seem inclined to produce either the papers or to account for the fact that it is not introducing those papers.
I just want to bring that to Your Honour's attention. The first item of business should have been consideration of the item "notices of motions (papers)". There is no consideration of such a motion because of the inaction of the government in producing papers.
