Mr. Donald M. Fleming (Eglinlon):

On a
question of privilege, Mr. Speaker, yesterday's Votes and Proceedings No. 60 contains what I believe is a serious mistake on page 345. Among the items of estimates reported to have been adopted in the committee of supply is No. 934, an item which reads in part:
Loans to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation repayable with interest-to cover capital costs of television installations and to support the development of the service, $4,500,000.
I believe that is a mistake in Votes and Proceedings, because I certainly did not hear that item called. I was following the proceedings closely, and it was just at eleven o'clock. I have asked my colleagues around me if they heard the item called, and they did not hear it.

Topic:   CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION
Subtopic:   REFERENCE TO CONSIDERATION OF ESTIMATES IN COMMITTEE OF SUPPLY ON DECEMBER 6 TELEVISION ITEM
