The Acting Speaker (Mr. Herbert):

The Chair should clarify the point. There were noes when the Chair asked whether we were going to carry or whether we were not going to carry third reading. At that stage the Hon. Member for Athabasca (Mr. Shields) said "no". I assumed that he wanted to debate third reading. However, we had already arrived at third reading.

Perhaps the Hon. Member will take his seat. The procedure we have followed by unanimous consent is that we have passed report stage and we are now at third reading of the Bill.

The Acting Speaker (Mr. Herbert):

The Chair appreciates the comments of the Hon. Member, but it should be abundantly apparent to him, as he has had experience in the chair, that it is not the responsibility of the Chair to ensure that there has been adequate communication between the various House Leaders who have had discussions and the Members of their respective Parties.

All the Chair can do is to put to the House the fact that it requires unanimous consent. When the House has given its unanimous consent, that effectively means that every Member

of the House is assumed to have adequate knowledge to allow him to give unanimous consent. It is up to the individual. Certainly, from the personal experience of the present occupant of the chair, if one is in any doubt, one refuses unanimous consent until the matter has been settled. In the present case, unanimous consent was given. We are now at report stage, which, of course, is debatable.

I can only suggest that at this stage-
