Liberal

Mr. DEPUTY SPEAKER:

Order. Although it is after eleven o'clock, I did not look at the clock because I wanted the leader of the opposition to have the opportunity to state his question of privilege. He has now stated it and I must say that it is not a question of privilege. It is a matter which he can bring up when the house is in committee.

Mr. DEPUTY SPEAKER:

Order. I think I have been very fair. I have allowed the leader of the opposition to state his question of privilege without my looking at the clock. I will now quote the rule which states that at eleven o'clock the Speaker will leave the chair without question put. It is eleven o'clock and I hereby adjourn this house until tomorrow at three o'clock in the afternoon.
