On the orders of the day:
Mr. ECCLES J. GOTT (South Essex): On a question of privilege, the hon. member for Kenora-Rainy River (Mr. Heenan) as reported in Hansard at page 3275 had this to say on the orders of the day:
Hon. Peter Heenan (Kenora-Rainy River): Mr. Speaker, during my absence from the house on April 24 the hon. member for South Essex (Mr. Gott) made a statement which will be found on page 2513 of Hansard. In referring to myself he said:
In the month of March of that year-
That is, 1930-
-he drew $520 sessional indemnity.
I said $620, not $520. He continued:
I have waited for nearly three weeks to try to catch the hon. member in his seat, but I have not been successful. I had hoped to make a correction while the hon. member was present, but I do not think the matter should go any further. I just want to say that that statement is not true.
I have no desire to do an injustice to any hon. member. If that statement is not true, I wish the hon. member had given the correct figures, because his total personal expenses for 1929, exclusive of his sessional indemnity and ministerial salary, were $9,291. His total personal expenses from 1926 to the end of his term in office were $16,691.
