Mr. Lambert:

The question relates to the privileges of the House as they are affected by the implementation by the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) of section 16(1) of the Senate and House of Commons Act. Because of today's timetable, however, and because there has been agreement, I shall defer my argument and expose of the question of privilege to a date which has been mutually agreed. In effect, it means that the legislation does not require that the Commissioners of Internal Economy shall be members of the cabinet. They must be Privy Councillors. The interpretation of the legislation, as I am advised and persuaded, is that the commissioners should come from members of the Privy Council in the House generally, and not exclusively from within the cabinet.
