The Speaker addressed the House:

Le Président s’adresse à l’Assemblée :

I would like a few moments to once again address the House regarding the participation of independent Members. As Members are aware, we recently adjusted the speaking time available to the Liberal independent Members during debates on Second and Third Reading of Government Bills and on substantive government motions. The eight Liberal independent Members had previously been granted two 12-minute allotments of speaking time in each debate.
Following the resignation of the Member for Scarborough—Guildwood (Mitzie Hunter), we reverted to the practice of granting the Liberal independents a single 20-minute allotment of speaking time per debate, which has previously been the practice of the House when there have been seven Liberal independent Members.
After making a statement to that effect last week, I was approached by the Member for Ottawa—Vanier (Lucille Collard) with a request that I grant the Liberal independent Members two 10-minute speaking blocks in debate rather than a single 20-minute speech. While considering this matter, l returned to the statement I made at the opening of current Parliament. On that occasion, I explained that my guiding principle was to ensure that each individual independent Member had a reasonable opportunity to participate in debate that was proportional to and in keeping with the time any other individual Member might expect to have.
I have concluded that the request from the Member for Ottawa—Vanier is compatible with that initial principle. It would be fair in that it would not grant the Liberal Members any more speaking time than they are currently allotted. That being the case, it would not be providing them with a more generous opportunity to participate than other Members benefit from.
Given this reasoning, I am prepared to agree to the Member for Ottawa—Vanier's request. Therefore, going forward, the Liberal independent Members will be permitted two 10-minute speaking allotments during debates on Second and Third Reading of Government Bills and on substantive government motions. It will continue to be possible to share this time but it may not be banked.
I would like to thank the House for its attention.

With unanimous consent,

Avec le consentement unanime,

Ordered, That notwithstanding Standing Order 100(a)(iv), in addition to the 5 minutes allotted to an independent Member, the Member for Algoma—Manitoulin (Michael Mantha) be allotted 5 minutes to speak during Private Members’ Public Business today (Ballot Item No. 47).

The House recessed at 11:47 a.m.

À 11 h 47, l’Assemblée a suspendu la séance.
