Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

The house has recognized, and I have always recognized, that the leader of the opposition should be allowed more latitude than is accorded probably to any other member because of the very fact of his position. But when the leader of the opposition takes upon himself the responsibility of transgressing the rules, even with the consent of the house, I would draw to the attention of all hon. members the fact that no member is allowed to transgress the rules, and I state that rule now for future guidance.
