Hon. Mark MacGuigan (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, if my hon. friend would wait until he hears the answer to draft his supplementary question, he would not have bothered asking that question. I have already answered it.

Hon. Mark MacGuigan (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to tell the Hon. Member that we are way ahead of him. The amendments which I have introduced to the Criminal Code will deal very explicitly with pornography, violence, and cruelty. I would suggest to all Hon. Members on the other side that if they co-operated in getting Bill C-19 through, we would have an earlier end to this problem.

Hon. Mark MacGuigan (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, of course 1 am prepared, as I have been, to discuss these questions with the Opposition and to be as accommodating as members of the opposition Parties are prepared to be. I should remind the Hon. Member that there are many parts of the Criminal Code Bill which are of the utmost urgency. For instance, the drinking and driving provisions are of extreme urgency. If she is suggesting that the only thing which matters in this whole piece of legislation is that one provision; let me indicate that we need all that Bill, not just parts of it.

Hon. Mark MacGuigan (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, the hon. gentleman well knows that because of Opposition obstruction last year to our legislation, we were not introducing new legislation. We were awaiting the end of the session and the new Speech from the Throne. This legislation has now been before the House for over two months, and we have yet to have any enouragement from his Party in getting it through.
