PRIVILEGE-MR. POULIOT

LIB

Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. JEAN FRANCOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata):

I rise to a question of privilege. On page 2772 of Hansard of yesterday I read this:

Mr. Chaplin: Why don't you broadcast it?

Mr. Pouliot: I have to speak loud for those who are deaf and dumb, like the hon. member.

I regret very much that those words appeared immediately after the interjection by the hon. member for Lincoln (Mr. Chaplin), because he is neither deaf nor dumb, and I have a high regard for him. The words applied to someone else. May I add that anyone who interrupts me when I have the floor is courting trouble.

Mr. MATTHEWS:

Mr. J. L. BROWN (Lisgar):

The return

I asked for would necessarily be included in the return asked by the hon. member for Yorkton (Mr. MePhee). It is strange that it should take longer to prepare the partial report than the other.
