Mr. JEAN (Translation):

I was paired with the hon. member for East Simcoe (Mr. Thompson). Had I voted I would have voted against the Speaker's ruling being sustained.

(Owing to the impossibility of recording pairs simultaneously declared, this list is incomplete.)

Mr. JEAN-FRANCOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata) (Translation): Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege in connection with an absurd newspaper item published on the front page of 1'Action Catholique of Thursday, November 17, 1932. The heading reads as follows: "J. F. Pouliot endorses the tariff changes-statement made by the hon. member for Temiscouata, yesterday, in the House of is Commons." What has actually happened is that this newspaper attributes to me a speech delivered by the hon. member for Labelle (Mr. Bourassa). You are, sir, better aware, than any one that I have never lost an opportunity to strenuously and energetically protest against these evil omen agreements.
