Senator GRIMES (Manager of Government Business)(10.45) —The difficulty I see with the procedure that Senate Messner is suggesting is that apart from the physical difficulty that we would have to come out of Committee, go back into the Senate and then come back into Committee again, if we did that we would in fact be amending a bit of legislation that we have not dealt with. That seems to me to be not a very sensible way to proceed. Although I claim no expertise is this area, it seems to me that the order as it is now is the sensible order.
