PRIVILEGE

MR. ASSELIN-CORRECTION OF NEWSPAPER ARTICLE

PC

Martial Asselin (Progressive Conservative Party Caucus Vice-Chair)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Asselin:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege.

Reporting on an address I delivered yesterday to members of Ottawa's Richelieu Club, the press quoted me as having said that resolving of constitutional problems should take place within two months.

I want to correct this error because, in fact, this is what I said: "If, within a few months, I would say two years at most, there is no sign of action in the constitutional domain-"

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this correction is to further clarify my position on the subject I was dealing with.

TIME LIMIT ON SPEECHES ON OPPOSITION SUPPLY MOTION

NDP

Stanley Howard Knowles (N.D.P. House Leader; Whip of the N.D.P.)

New Democratic Party

Mr. Sianley Knowles (Winnipeg Norih Centre):

Mr. Speaker, may I report a second fruitful discussion. It has to do with the time limits on speeches in the debate which will take place later today on the motion that will be moved by my hon. friend from York South.

The agreement among the parties is that the mover of the motion and the principal speaker on behalf of the government shall each have 30 minutes, the principal speakers for the Official Opposition and the Ralliement des Creditistes 20 minutes, and all other speakers 15 minutes. It is also agreed that no speaker shall ask for an extension of time.
