Mr. Donald M. Fleming (Eglinion):
question of privilege, Mr. Speaker; in yesterday's Hansard, at page 2115 there are recorded six questions that I placed on the order paper concerning the C.B.C. "Tabloid" program on February 6 of the film of a marriage that was solemnized on February 4. There were six questions and apparently the Minister of National Revenue referred them all to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The answers given yesterday are answers that come from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation because those answers are preceded by the words, "The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation advises as follows".
Now, the sixth question was:
Does the government consider such programs in good taste on television?
The only answer I have been given is that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is not in a position to answer this question. May I have the question answered by the government, to whom I directed the question, as to whether the government considers the programming of a marriage ceremony actually solemnized to be in good taste for television programs?
