I think we have heard the argument on this. The Chair seems to have got the drift thoroughly.
The hon. member for Scarborough—Rouge River, the President of the Treasury Board and the hon. member for Notre-Dame-de-Grâce—Lachine all made interventions on this subject on behalf of the government. We also heard from the hon. member for St. John's West, the hon. member for Pictou—Antigonish—Guysborough and the hon. member for Provencher on behalf of the opposition. We also heard from other members of the House.
I believe that the Chair has heard enough on this point to be able to take the matter under consideration.
I will get back to the House in due course and give a decision on the matter.
On a point of order, the hon. member for Peace River.
