Progressive Conservative

Mr. F. E. LENNARD (Wentworth):

On a question of privilege I wish to refer to a Canadian press dispatch appearing in the Globe and Mail this morning, to the effect that at a one day conference sponsored by the national council for Canadian-Soviet friendship, held in Ottawa yesterday, some- -one hundred delegates, including parliamentarians, labour and other representatives attended, with Professor Barker Fairley of the university of Toronto acting as chairman in the absence of Leslie Roberts, Montreal writer, and president of the council.
By failing, sir, to name the parliamentarians who were among the one hundred delegates a reflection is cast upon members of this house. I wish it to be distinctly understood that I was not one of them.
