Mr. Albert Cooper (Peace River):

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour this morning to present, in both official languages, the fourth report of the Standing Committee on Elections, Privileges and Procedure.
On June 18, 1985, the Hon. James McGrath presented to the House the third report of the Special Committee on Reform of the House of Commons. Since that time many of the reforms contained in the report have been implemented through the provisional Standing Orders. These Standing Orders are due to expire on the fifteenth of this month.
Your Committee on Elections, Privileges and Procedure has reviewed the provisional Standing Orders and has recommended changes. These recommendations come as a result of the experience we have had with these new rules and are designed to carry on the spirit of reform.
We recommend with the changes set out in our report that the provisional Standing Orders be made permanent.
