PRIVILEGE

LIB

Colin David Gibson

Liberal

Mr. Colin D. Gibson (Hamilton-Wentworth):

I wish to deny the error made by the right hon. member for Prince Albert (Mr. Diefenbaker) when he falsely stated that I asked a planted question on the subject of Canada Day in the House, as quoted in the Hamilton Spectator of Friday, May 5.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I am not sure whether this motion has not already been put to the House.

Is there unanimous consent?
