Mr LIONEL BOWEN (Leader of the House) —Mr Deputy Speaker, I seek the indulgence of the House to raise a point of procedure. Before the debate is resumed on this order of the day, I suggest that it may suit the convenience of the House to have a general debate covering this motion and the next two orders of the day, as they are associated with the same subject. I suggest, therefore, Mr Deputy Speaker, that you permit the subject matter of the three orders of the day to be discussed in this debate.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Hon. Les Johnson) —Is it the wish of the house to have a general debate covering the three matters? There being no objection, I will allow that course to be followed.
