Senator HOGG (6:03 PM) —No, I am not. I just thought there might be a preparedness on the part of the government to entertain a reasonable proposition put forward by Senator Collins, which is that there be some provision, in respect of amendments (4) and (8), that would exclude them from those embryos which are being considered where there is a suspected genetic disorder.
