PRIVILEGE

MR. LENNARD-REFERENCE IN "GLOBE AND MAIL" TO NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR CANADIAN-SOVIET FRIENDSHIP

PC

Frank Exton Lennard

Progressive Conservative

Mr. F. E. LENNARD (Wentworth):

On a question of privilege I wish to refer to a Canadian press dispatch appearing in the Globe and Mail this morning, to the effect that at a one day conference sponsored by the national council for Canadian-Soviet friendship, held in Ottawa yesterday, some- -one hundred delegates, including parliamentarians, labour and other representatives attended, with Professor Barker Fairley of the university of Toronto acting as chairman in the absence of Leslie Roberts, Montreal writer, and president of the council.

By failing, sir, to name the parliamentarians who were among the one hundred delegates a reflection is cast upon members of this house. I wish it to be distinctly understood that I was not one of them.

Mr. MACKENZIE:

On a point of order, I do not think for one moment that the point raised by the hon. member was a question of privilege. Every hon. member of this parliament is free to do as he wishes with respect to any motion or movement on parliamentary or economic history.

MR. REID-REFERENCE TO ARTICLE IN WINNIPEG "TRIBUNE"

LIB

Thomas Reid

Liberal

Mr. THOMAS REID (New Westminster):

On a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker, I wish to refer to an article which appeared in the Winnipeg Tribune under the heading: "Pastor wants house gym for saggy M.P.'s." My objection is to the last paragraph in which I am described as, "Thomas Reid, the Progressive Conservative". I have been called a number of names in my day, Mr. Speaker, but this is the first time I have been referred to as a Progressive Conservative, and I wish to make a correction.

Mr. GRAYDON:

May I ask the Minister of Veterans Affairs if it is the intention of the government to take similar action this session with respect to other departmental estimates?

CANADIAN FORCES

DECORATION S-REFERENCE TO RETURN ORDERED ON APRIL 30

LIB

Brooke Claxton (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Hon. BROOKE CLAXTON (Minister of National Defence):

On April 30 a question asked by the hon. member for Nanaimo (Mr. Pearkes) was passed as an order for return. The question as originally asked, and as it appeared in the Votes and Proceedings, referred to decorations to personnel of the Canadian army only. A correction appeared in Hansard, making the reference to the "armed forces," but the return tabled referred only to the army. I should now like to file a supplementary' return to include foreign decorations awarded to personnel of the other services.
