Mr. F. S. ZAPLITNY (Dauphin):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. My question arises out of a news item appearing in the Winnipeg Citizen of March 17, reporting on the debate which took place in this house on the wheat bill. In the item the hon. member for Springfield (Mr. Sinnott) is quoted as saying:
If the hon. member for Portage la Prairie (C.C.F., Miller) had stopped speaking on Friday last, we would have had this bill through the house now, he commented.
The hon. member for Portage la Prairie, to my best knowledge and belief-and I should know, being chairman of the Manitoba C.C.F.-is not a member of the C.C.F.
Subtopic: MR. ZAPLITNY-REFERENCE TO NEWS ITEM IN WINNIPEG "CITIZEN" OF MARCH 17
