Hon. J. Watson MacNaught (Solicitor General):

Mr. Speaker, I understand that the Standing Committee on Transport and Communications has referred two bills back to the House for consideration, Bill S-4 and Bill S-5. Could we have unanimous consent to deal with the committee stages of these two bills?

Mr. MacNaughl:

Mr. Speaker, on Friday the House will be asked to consider the committee stage of Bill C-188, an Act to amend the Income Tax Act; second reading of an Act to amend the Children of War Dead (Education Assistance) Act; second reading of an Act to amend the Army Benevolent Fund Act; the resolution preceding a bill to amend the Judges Act; the resumed debate on the resolution to set up a joint committee on consumer credit; a motion to consider interim supply, and two supplementary estimates which, I understand, have been discussed with the Leaders of the various parties. Of course this statement is made with the reservation that the order in which the items have been announced is not necessarily the order in which they may be considered.

Mr. MacNaught:

It would appear to me, Mr. Speaker, that the same purpose could be achieved by voting against the bill as is proposed by the amendment. The amendment says that this bill should not now be read a second time. This purpose could be achieved by voting against the bill. The amendment also refers to consideration being given to the introduction of legislation, but if that legislation were introduced by a private Member it would be out of order. I believe the substantial objection is the fact that the amendment is seeking to achieve something which could be achieved by voting against second reading.
