Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. POULIOT:

I rise to a point of order. This question is exactly the same as question No. 21 standing in my name, and I object very much to the leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett) becoming my new disciple in this matter. Question No. 21 appeared in the votes and proceedings of Thursday last, so I do not see why the question of my hon. disciple from Calgary West should have been put on the votes and proceedings on Friday.

Question stands.
