Right Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Justice):
Mr. Speaker, I never raise questions of privilege, or allude to what appears in the newspapers; but my attention has been called to an editorial in the Ottawa Journal interpreting certain words I used in an address a few days ago as applying to all the newspapers in Canada. That was far from being my intention. I had in mind only two or three newspapers, and I am pleased to say that the Ottawa Journal was not one of them.
