Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GRAYDON:

-or an official document, he must table that letter or document. That is not only the custom and the practice; it is in accordance with the rules of this house. If the minister had said that he was reading only the document that was produced to the House of Lords, it would be an entirely different matter. I listened carefully to what the minister said. As I understood him, he said that he had either received the letter on or the date of the letter was April 26, and he then attempted to quote from the letter. There was nothing in what he said to indicate that he was quoting only part. From where I sit I could see that all the letter was not being quoted by the minister. I rise now to indicate that the rules of the house, which I think must be clear enough, provide for the tabling of the letter itself.
