Mr. Baker (Grenville-Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday, as reported at page 5409 of Hansard, this was your ruling with respect to the matter involving the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar. Your position was different today than it was yesterday. Yesterday as reported at this page you said this: Order, please. I will extend the question period by a moment or two to recognize two or three hon. members who have been attempting to be recognized-
1 am reading exactly what it says.
However, before I can go on, I will have to ask the hon. member for Saskatoon-Biggar to withdraw the remarks he has just made about the Prime Minister.
In that case, the member chose to withdraw. In this case the member chose not to withdraw. None the less, there are other members in this House who are quite outside the difference of points of view, and of the view expressed by the hon. member for Joliette, who ought not have their right to ask questions deprived on the day after you preserved their rights under a similar circumstance. That is precisely why I rose, sir. I think you should understand it.
