Mr. Lind:

I realize now that my name was removed from the committee on agriculture at six o'clock on October 15. I should like an explanation of why that was done.

Mr. Lind:

-should give an explanation why this was done. I was taken off the committee; now I am being replaced, but I have never been consulted in the matter, and I think I deserve that explanation.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I must bring to the attention of hon. members that the motion placed before the house was carried. It is not debatable. The hon. member rose on a question of privilege, but I suggest there should be no debate, since it is rather a grievance than a question of privilege. The hon. member

himself termed it a grievance. He told the house he had a grievance and essentially this is not a question of privilege. According to the rules the hon. member is required to give written notice if he proposes to raise a question of privilege which he has not done. I suggest therefore that this matter should not be debated at this time.

Mr. Speaker:

The hon. member may have his reasons for asking for an explanation, but I suggest it should not be given to him in the house at this time. Perhaps there might be private consultations.

Mr. Maclnnis (Cape Brelon-Easi Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, am I to understand that backbenchers of the opposition parties are not permitted to come to the aid of a Liberal backbencher?

Order, please. Would the hon. member kindly resume his seat for one moment. He must resume his seat if he wants to give me the opportunity to recognize him.
