PRIVILEGE

REFERENCE TO REPORT IN "MONTREAL GAZETTE" OF APRIL 28

LIB

Douglas Charles Abbott (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Hon. Douglas Abbott (Minister of Finance):

Mr. Speaker, I think I will rise on a question of privilege, something that I rarely do. I note that in today's Montreal Gazette my good friend the resident correspondent of that paper has an interesting article which is headed "Abbott is proposed as author of prize parliamentary boner." I do not quarrel with that, but I should like to put forward a candidate for the second prize. A Canadian Press dispatch in the same paper contains a report of the proceedings which took place yesterday in the other place. It reads as follows:

Senator Haig said he would urge that, after the general election, Justice Minister Garson approach the Attorney General of Quebec with a view to "reforming" the system.

Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Knowles:

I think the motion is perfectly clear, but I should like it to be understood that if it is carried it will apply to bills that come from the Senate after it is passed, and not, I take it, to the Senate bills that are on the order paper for today.

LIB

Louis Stephen St-Laurent (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Mr. Si. Laurent:

I listened to the language of the motion as read, and it appeared to me to apply as from the time it is adopted, without retroactive effect. I do not want to pose as the official interpreter of the resolution, but that is the meaning I took from it when I heard it read.
