Thank you kindly, Mr. Minister. When we concluded dealing with matters in committee of the whole on Friday, June 16, 1995, we were dealing with clause 5 of Bill 25. At that time, there was a motion on the floor moved by the honourable Minister. I will read the motion, for the record, and to refresh Members' memories about what the motion was:

Committee Motion 73-12(7): To Amend Clause 5 Of Bill 25, Carried
Item 19: Consideration In Committee Of The Whole Of Bills And Other Matters

That clause 5 of Bill 25 be amended by striking out "within five months after the beginning of the academic year," and by substituting "on or before December 31 of the academic year," in proposed paragraph (1)(a).

To the motion.
