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

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

Mr. Knowles:

I am not engaging in argument about the point. As I recall the debate, and as I recall reading it afterwards, a very important change has been made in the record. Hansard has the minister saying that ninety per cent are going to receive "up to" $10 per month. Of course I would not have doubted that statement, but it is altogether different from what the minister said.

Mr. Knowles:

Mr. Speaker, in resuming my seat I found that the chair wasn't there. I rise on a question of privilege to say that I am still on my feet and still have my seat.

Jean-François Pouliot

Mr. Jean Frangois Pouliol (Temiscouaia):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege, correction and personal explanation. The house knows that I have always been a Liberal, and those who are familiar with the dictionary-

James Horace King (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. Speaker:

It is almost impossible for the Speaker to hear the hon. member who has the floor. Is the hon. member rising on a question of privilege?

Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. Pouliol:

Yes, sir. I was saying that the house knows that I have always been a Liberal, and those who are familiar with the dictionary know that the words "liberal" and "independent" are synonymous.

In the list of members, with political affiliations, as it appears at the back of the daily edition of Hansard, I am described as an Independent Liberal-the only one; and that was done at my request to the editor of debates. My reason for making that request was that I wanted my crossing of the floor to be ratified by my electors at the last election. The same thing appears in the latest edition of the Parliamentary Guide at page 233.

I have waited for some time to judge the new Prime Minister (Mr. St. Laurent) as leader of the house and of the party, and I am so much satisfied with his accomplishments since he took charge-

Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. Pouliol:

Even if hon. members do not like it, I will state my correction, which is on a question of privilege. In future I want to be designated in Hansard, as well as in the Parliamentary Guide, as a straight Liberal.

INQUIRIES FOR RETURNS

DEPORTATIONS

CCF

Alistair McLeod Stewart

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

Mr. Alistair Slewarl (Winnipeg North):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. On February 9 the house passed a motion standing in my name for the production of certain papers dealing, among other things, with the entry into Canada of nazi collaborators. In a speech a few days later I suggested that these papers might be so much emasculated when I received them that they would be worthless. I withdrew that statement at the time, believing that perhaps I was in error. However, not only have I not received emasculated papers; after seventy-nine days I have received no papers at all.

Can the Minister of Mines and Resources give me any assurance that this return, which was ordered seventy-nine days ago, will be brought down today?
