Mr. C. C. I. MERRITT (Vancouver-Burrard):
Mr. Speaker, referring to the question of privilege raised yesterday by the hon. member for Vancouver North (Mr. Sinclair), as a matter of the expense of travelling by air is important to all members coming from distant parts of Canada. I wonder if Your Honour would inform the house of the reasons for the decision to which reference was made.
