Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to refer to a matter affecting the privileges of parliament and of myself as a member of parliament. This morning, citizens who sought to interview members of parliament were stopped outside the entrances to this building-not within the precincts of the building, but on the outside near the doors. Among those who were stopped were the premier of Saskatchewan and a member of the legislative assembly, who were required to show some evidence that members of parliament wished to see them. I want to refer this to you, Mr. Speaker, as custodian of the rights of members of this house, because I believe that inquiry should be made and we should be informed under what authority and by whose direction this very extraordinary procedure was followed.
