Mr. Dubé laid upon the table of the House a petition signed by residents of Health Region 5 urging the government to establish a hemodialysis unit in Health Region 5. (Petition 13)
Hon. Mr. Green announced that it was the intention of the government that the House resolve itself into a Committee of Supply to consider the estimates of the Department of Health and Wellness followed by those of the Department of Transportation.
The House, according to Order, resolved itself into a Committee of Supply with Mr. Bernard in the chair.
And after some time, Hon. E. Robichaud rose on a point of order claiming that the remarks of Mrs. Mersereau, the Member for Bathurst, were becoming repetitious and were not being directed through the chair. The Chairman ruled the point of order well taken and cautioned the Member for Bathurst to address all remarks through the chair. The Chairman further advised that there is no limit on the number of questions a Member may ask during Committee; however, there is a rule against repetition and he intended to monitor the debate more closely.
At 12.30 o'clock p.m. the Chairman left the chair to resume again at 2 o'clock p.m.
