SC

Ernest George Hansell

Social Credit

Mr. E. G. HANSELL (Macleod):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege respecting what I believe to be a reflection upon the entire Social Credit group in this house.' After I spoke last evening the Minister of Munitions and Supply (Mr. Howe) replied as appears at page 2207 of Hansard. He said:
Just a word in reply to my hon. friend. I have listened with great interest to the foreign policy of the Social Credit party. I think this is the first time it has been expounded in this house.
Then the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles) made this remark: "International anarchy". I heard the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre make that remark. He did not say it very loudly. I did not want to make a public example of him by asking him to withdraw it then, as I thought the Hansard reporter did not get it. Evidently he did, since it is recorded here. I ask my hon. friend to withdraw that remark. If he is a gentleman he will do it.
Privilege-Mr. Hansell
