December 4, 1979 (31st Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

Gerald William Baldwin

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Baldwin:

Mr. Speaker, when you said the "House," I think you meant the government has not complied with that. 1 think that is where the difficulty lies. As I understand it, the government feels that the terms of the order of reference to be given must omit any claim Crown privilege. That is what I take exception to and it is what I think is a question of privilege. I may be wrong in that and if I am 1 will gladly stop now. Maybe my friend the President of the Privy Council has something to say.
