Richard Burpee Hanson (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

On a point of order, I did not wish to intervene while the hon. gentleman was speaking, but the rules are there; they should not be violated without the consent of this house, and no consent was asked for. Had the hon. member asked for overtime I personally would have cheerfully granted it to him, but I do not think the rules should be used for the purpose of abusing

political opponents or of putting on a burlesque in this house.
