Mr. POWER:

I charge my hon. friend with sabotage of Canada's war effort by making that statement. If my colleague, the Minister of Justice, were carrying on the work as it should be carried on, he would intern the fifth column over there.

Mr. HARRIS (Danforth):

The Minister of National Defence for Air (Mr. Power) has not addressed his remarks to the chair. The Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Gardiner) and the hon. member for Northumberland, Ont. (Mr. Fraser) have acted in a like manner. The leader of this house has sat in his seat and has not defended the rules and privileges of the house. He has permitted these ministers to talk directly across the floor and not to the Chairman.

Mr. POWER:

I must say the point of order is well taken, and I withdraw anything that I may have said by way of addressing myself directly to the hon. gentleman opposite. However, I do not withdraw any of the essential things which I said, namely, that the kind of discussion which has been going on here and the spreading of false rumours are derogatory to Canada's war effort and sabotage.

The CHAIRMAN:

My ruling on the point of order is that it is not well taken. All these

Government Loan-Mr. McNevin

hon. gentlemen have resumed their seats and the point of order should have been raised while they were on their feet. I shall take this opportunity to direct the attention of the committee to the fact that I have tried to give as much leeway as possible to all hon. members. This debate has not been in accordance with the rules of the house and I ask hon. members kindly to follow the rules. The hon. member for York West (Mr. Adamson) has the floor.
