Mr. HERMENEGILDE BOULAY (Ri-mouski) (translation):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to a point of order. At this late hour the hon. member for Laprairie rises to speak, and he is such a fine orator it seems to me there should be at least a quorum of twenty members to listen to him- I call your attention to the fact that there is not a quorum present.
Mr. 'SPEAKER: I find that the point'of order is well taken.
And a count having been taken, it was -found that a quorum was not in the 'Chamber.
Subtopic: DEBATE CONTINUED ON MOTION FOR SECOND READING AND ON THE AMENDMENTS.
