Pursuant to the Order of the House dated May 11, 2017,

Conformément à l’ordre de l’Assemblée du 5 mai 2017,

Referred to the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs.

Renvoyé au Comité permanent des finances et des affaires économiques.

The House recessed at 12:04 p.m.

À 12 h 04, la Chambre a suspendu la séance.

1:00 P.M.

The Speaker delivered the following ruling:-

Le Président a rendu la décision suivante :-

The Government House Leader has given me notice of his intention to raise a point of privilege with respect to the withdrawal last week, with unanimous consent of the House, of Bill 83, An Act to amend the Labour Relations Act, 1995 with respect to the determination of bargaining units and the certification of trade unions, by its sponsor, the Member for Stormont—Dundas—South Glengarry.

I am prepared to rule on this matter without hearing further from the Government House Leader, as Standing Order 21(d) permits me to do.

The Government House Leader states that the Member sought to withdraw his bill as a result of having been subject to pressure to do so. The House Leader indicates that one of his staff witnessed a meeting among the Member for Stormont—Dundas—South Glengarry and others during which, the staffer speculates, this pressure was asserted.

First, let me emphasize the speculative nature of the assertion that is made. No recounting of events or discussions is made by a first-hand participant of the alleged meeting. It is not a sound policy to publicly conjecture about the private discussions of others. Second, in the absence of a complaint from the Member for Stormont— Dundas—South Glengarry himself that he believes his privileges have been interfered with, then there is no basis for the Speaker to deal further with this matter.
