Ms. Olivia Chow: The amendment is that the clause-by-clause consideration to the Refugee Appeal Division private member's bill be done on June 11th, prior to the end of this session. It is a practice that we give acknowledgement and courtesy to a private member's bill that is in front of the House of Commons. The second reading passed in the House a few months ago and it's only fair that we deal with this private member's bill on the establishment of the Refugee Appeal Division before the end of this session. The House of Commons, Parliament has voted on this matter at least twice, as I recall, in two Parliaments.

    That's my amendment. I don't think I need to go into details as to why it's important.

    The Chair: I have--

    Ms. Olivia Chow: We understand, we either support it or not support it. It's one clause, it wouldn't take that much time.

    The Chair: We're voting on the amendment. What were you suggesting that be dealt with on June 11, Ms. Chow? Is that what your amendment is on June 11 before BIll C-37?

    Ms. Olivia Chow: Yes.

    The Chair: That clause-by-clause consideration to the establishment of the Refugee Appeal Division's private member's bill be done on June 11 prior to the end of this session.
