Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. I remind hon. members that after six o'clock the Chair has no authority except to rise. I think that is the long-established tradition. I do not think I have the right to stand and listen to debate, points of order or questions of privilege: perhaps that might be the order of the day for tomorrow.

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. Hon. members will appreciate that it is difficult for the Chair to hear what is being said. The right hon. member for Prince Albert (Mr. Diefenbaker) seeks the floor on a question of privilege. I have serious doubt whether the question of privilege can be heard. I know the precedent to which the right hon. gentleman refers, but my interpretation of the precedent and what happened before is that really the Chair must abide by the rules. I call on the right hon. gentleman to agree with the Chair and to appreciate my position.

Mr. Diefenbaker:

Mr. Speaker, I rose to say that I always follow the orders of the Chair, but these people are afraid and they want to change the constitution.
