Procedure and House Affairs

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I wish to ask for a clarification. This is the first time I have found myself in a position where a member in my situation was actually able, collectively with the other members in my situation, to table a further dissent.

I wonder if that is permitted to be discussed at this point or not. It is to the same report


The Speaker: I can provide that clarification. The rules of our House allow for the official opposition to table a minority report, which has just happened, so it is time to move on.

There are not opportunities for other members to table other dissenting reports, at least not at this time. As I said, if and when the motion to concur in the report that was just tabled is called, I am sure members will have the ability to add their thoughts to the record.
