Mr. Tom Bell (Saint John-Lancaster):

Mr. Speaker, I would ask the minister why the government cannot bring forward measures in the proper way in this House, pursuant to an announcement by the government House leader, in order that hon. members do not have to use Standing Order 43 motions and private bills, thereby mixing everything up? If the minister wants to do something for the CNR pensioners, why does he not act in a straightforward manner in the House, announce it, and then go ahead with it?
