Mr. SPEAKER:

In rising to speak to a
question of privilege the hon. member should deal merely with the matter about which he complains. He should not enter into an argument or enlarge upon a statement that has been made already; he should simply make his position clear as to what he intended when he made his statement in the house. I think the hon. member has now made it clear what his intentions were. He has told of the date when he received notice of these sinkings, and how he delayed in giving that information on the floor of the house. I think the hon. member has now gone as far as he should on a question of privilege.
