Mr. Speaker:

Before the motion could be put to the House for debate and disposition the Chair would have to rule that there was a prima facie case of privilege. Although the hon. member may have a grievance or complaint, I have serious doubts whether his point would amount to a question of privilege which ought to be referred to either the Standing Committee on Privileges and Elections or another committee of the House. I think the hon. member has made his point in his presentation to the House in relation to the grievance of which he has
complained, but I doubt that the interests of the House would best be served by having a debate at this time.

Topic:   PRIVILEGE
Subtopic:   MR. HALIBURTON-MANNER OF RELEASE OF REPORT ON OFFSHORE LOBSTER FISHERY
