Mr. George A. Drew (Leader of the Opposition):
On a question of privilege
Mr. Speaker, on reading Hansard of November 21 at page 2000, just after I had presented certain views to you in regard to a discussion which took place yesterday on a point of order I find that words are included which I did not hear. If I had heard them, I would have dealt with them immediately.
Following the presentation of a quotation from Beauchesne's Parliamentary Rules and Forms, Hansard reports the Minister of Trade and Commerce, (Mr. Howe) as saying: "Always the slanderer." Since that incident is past, I do not propose to do more than to say that had I heard that statement at the time it was made, I would have taken appropriate action.
