Mr. Jacques Guilbault (Saint-Jacques):
Mr. Speaker, the Minister of Justice just told us that the Government is determined to have the Official Languages Act, or Bill C-72, passed by this Parliament, by this House before the next election. If I understand him well, he asked for the help of the Opposition. Well, I want to offer him that help. On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada, I would like to give the consent of the Official Opposition to time restriction under Standing Order 115. I am sure the New Democratic Party would also consent to limit the debate on Bill C-72, because we know very well that a clause-by-clause debate of those 136 amendments would put that off indefinitly. Is the Government willing to accept that offer?
