Progressive Conservative

Hon. Ray Hnatyshyn (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada):

Mr. Speaker, we are not. I am sorry that the Hon. Member attempts to pretend that the matter has not been dealt with by Parliament. We made a commitment as a Government and a Party that Parliament would have an opportunity to vote on this in a free vote. We brought forward a motion which was debated and amended and upon which every Member had an opportunity to vote. I do not know whether the Hon. Member was here for that vote.
