Mr. ROGERS:

Tabled herewith.

tion of privilege. In an editorial published yesterday on the subject of the national defence estimates, the Ottawa newspaper Le Droit attributed to me and to all my dissenting colleagues, without exception, unjust and humiliating motives.

We have never even thought of taking advantage of any means of evasion whatever.

On my own behalf and on behalf of my colleagues from St. Maurice-Laflfeche (Mr. Crete), of Trois-Rivieres (Mr. Gariepy), of Champlain (Mr. Brunelle), of Quebec-Mont-morency (Mr. Wilfrid Lacroix), of Portneuf (Mr. Gauthier), of Quebec West (Mr. Charles Parent), of Laval-Two Mountains (Mr. Lacombe) and of Lake St. John (Mr. Sylvestre), I protest against this article. I wish to state once more in this house that our views regarding the increase in the military estimates are the same this year as last.
