Mr. SPEAKER:

The hon. member has made the request of the Chair that .there should be a proper translation of the words that were used in the motion which the right hon. the Prime Minister brought before the house,. I would say to the hon. gentleman that I checked the translation, and I am satisfied that the translation in English of the hon. gentleman's speeech was not a correct translation of the French text. With what the hon. gentleman has said, supplemented by the Prime Minister, and also what I now say, I think there has been sufficient reference to justify the hon. gentleman on the question of privilege, and to make clear that the English text was not a proper translation of the French text.
