March 19, 1985

Mr. Lawrence:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I wonder if, before you cut off question period in the future, you could at least give some indication that you wish to know if anyone else in the House wishes to raise a question. Some of us on this side of the House, even though we do not continually pop up like jack-in-the-boxes, do have valid questions to ask. It is rather unfair, if I may suggest, Sir, that you cut everyone off if there are only two Members on the Opposition side who wish to ask questions.

Mr. Lawrence:

Mr. Speaker, my understanding is that you are not ringing the bells with the unanimous consent of the House. I would therefore request that you ring the bells.

Mr. Lawrence:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I think, by the actions of the House tonight, we are in grave danger of having the whole evening declared null and void, simply on the ground, if no other, that it requires the unanimous consent of the House to dispense with the ringing of the bells before a vote. I am sure it does.
