Mr. E. D. Fulton (Kamloops):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. I base it on citation 198 of Beauchesne's Parliamentary-Rules and Forms, third edition, dealing with with statements referring to members of a committee of this house. There has just come to my attention an article appearing in the Vancouver Province of May 26, 1952, over which there is the heading, "Redistribution Pattern Appears". There is in this case no map in the paper as there was in another case but there is a very complete and detailed description of the proposed changes in the boundaries of constituencies in that province. Not only is there a detailed description but there is a statement that the changes in boundaries of some of the ridings have been agreed to by the members of the British Columbia subcommittee. I want to make it clear at the outset that as a member of that subcommittee I have not agreed to any such changes as outlined here. The article states:
Boundaries of the latter-
The reference is to one of the proposed new ridings.
-are far from settled by the B.C. subcommittee of the house committee on redistribution. But the outline of the former-
That refers to another proposed change.
-is fairly well set. It will run across Vancouver from east to west between the present Vancouver South and Vancouver-Quadra ridings-
