PRIVILEGE-MR. DAVIES

CON

Percy Griffith Davies

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. P. G. DAVIES (Athabaska):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. Last

Friday evening, the seventeenth, while the hon. member for East Algoma (Mr. Nicholson) was discussing the second reading of Bill No. 24, to amend the criminal code, he referred to the question of where the communist party was raising its funds, and during the course of his remarks 'the hon. member for Wetaskiwin (Mr. Irvine) interjected a remark to the effect that some of its funds came from the Conservative party. Upon being pressed for the source of his information the hon. member for Wetaskiwin is reported by Hansard to have replied, at page 2229, "From the hon. member for Athabaska (Mr. Davies)." Mir. Speaker, I deny ever having had any conversation with the hon. member for Wetaskiwin or anybody else on such a subject. I deny ever having made such a statement to him or to anybody else. I further deny that there is any truth whatever in his statement as reported. As a matter of fact, I was in the house at the time and I happened to notice that the hon. member for Wetaskiwin used the word "Ask" the hon. member for Athabaska, not "From," and I would ask that a correction accordingly be made in Hansard.
