Mr. FRED ROSE (Cartier):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. For a month or or more I have been waiting patiently to be assigned a room in this building. I did not want to bring up this matter in this house, believing that there were many more important matters which should be dealt with but I
House of Commons-Room Accommodation
have pleaded with you, Mr. Speaker, and with the Clerk of the House without being able to get any satisfaction. I have had the job of mailing out my speeches; I keep my mail in a box somewhere in one of the rooms, but I have no proper accommodation, and I feel that the time has come when I must speak up, since apparently there is no other way of getting satisfaction. We talk about complacency. I have found a great deal of it, with people unwilling to move their desks in order to make it possible for another hon. member to do his duty to his electors, and I am afraid that reflects another sort of complacency among many hon. members here. As I say, I have waited patiently, but now I bring this matter to the attention of the house in the hope that I may get satisfaction. I do not believe it should have been necessary to mention it in this house; the matter should have been attended to the day I arrived here, and I should not have had to wait four weeks without result.
