Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Laurier):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. On Friday of last week the hon. member for Peel (Mr. Pallett) in referring to me, said this, and I quote from page 159 of Hansard:
Perhaps, of course, his general remarks can be taken as being on the same basis of accuracy as those in which he congratulated the mover and the seconder of the address when he said that he shared the same experience on his first visit to the house. I took the liberty while he was speaking of checking Hansard and found his name did not appear in Hansard as either the mover or the seconder of the address. Maybe we should give the same attention to the rest of his remarks as is indicated by the index to Hansard with regard to that particular comment.
Mr. Speaker, on January 16, 1939, I had the honour of seconding the address in reply to the speech from the throne in this house. That is a matter of record, and if the hon. member for Peel is the person I think he is, then he will do as a gentleman would in the circumstances.
