Mr. SPEAKER:

I must say to the hon. member for Peel that the hon. member for Peterborough West rose yesterday on a question of privilege. If the hon. member will look at standing order No. 12 he will find that it states this:
12(1) Mr. Speaker shall preserve order and decorum, and shall decide questions of order, subject to an appeal-
And so on. I have made a statement in answer to the hon. member for Peterborough West respecting his question of privilege. It was not a ruling on a point of order. Since no point of order was raised, there is nothing before the house. The hon. member knows very well that when the bon. member for
Peterborough West rose yesterday it was on a question of privilege. Therefore I do not believe any debate is permissible, and moreover, there can be no appeal.

Topic:   PRIVILEGE
