Mr. Daniel Mclvor (Fori William):

I rise to a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker. There is an article in the Globe and Mail, a newspaper I respect and frequently read, bearing this headline: "Claim Seven of Ten M.P.'s Use 'smugs'." The reference is to smuggled cigarettes, Mr. Speaker. This whole house passed this law, and if members of parliament are so keen on saving a few cents on cigarettes I do not think this is the place for them. We should obey our own laws if we expect others to obey them.
