REFERENCE TO STATEMENT BY THE HON. MEMBER FOR SHERBROOKE


On the orders of the day:


CON

Edgar Nelson Rhodes (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. E. N. RHODES (Miuister of Finance):

Some time ago I directed the attention of the house to an observation made by my hon. friend from Sherbrooke (Mr. Howard) in the course of his remarks upon the budget. Since then my hon. [DOT] friend has been absent and I trust that he has enjoyed a delightful holiday in one of the most beautiful spots on earth. Now that he has returned from Bermuda I trust that he will take a more charitable view of political opponents than is indicated by the language he used on that occasion. In case his memory requires to

be refreshed I would refer him to page 1994 of Hansard where he made the assertion that members of the government had failed to convert their bonds while calling upon the public to do so.

Mr. LAPOINTE:

The point of order is that no objection was taken to these words at the time and my hon. friend has no right to bring the matter up now.

Pierre Édouard Blondin (Speaker of the Senate)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SPEAKER:

I ruled on that point of order some days ago to the effect that the hon. member for Sherbrooke had a right to make an explanation if he chose. It is not a case of objecting to words because they are unparliamentary in form, in which case objection would have to be taken at the time. But this is a different set of circumstances altogether.
