The Chairman:

Order. On the point of

order, I am afraid the clause cannot be separated. May I draw the hon. member's attention to May's fifteenth edition, at page 534:

When a clause contains two or more subsections which are not mutually dependent, an amendment to leave out each subsection is in order. When the subsequent subsections are dependent upon or ancillary to the first subsection, an amendment to the clause to leave out that subsection is out of order, as the effect of such an amendment being carried would be to destroy the clause. The decision that should be reached, and the discussion that should properly arise, on the question of the clause standing part of the bill would thus be anticipated. The same principle has been applied to an amendment to leave out the essential words of a subsection.

This refers more particularly to amendments, but by inference I would take it it would be impossible to divide the vote on this clause. I must rule that I should call the clause as a whole.
