CON

George Green Foster

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir GEORGE FOSTER:

Peccavi; I acknowledge the corn. But, Mr. Speaker, you will not attribute it to my desire to break the rules of the House. I should have known the rule very well; I am sure that I would have recalled it if I had thought for a moment. The letter was put
[Rir Robert Borden.]
in my hand just as I came to my desk, and I read it. I hope, however, that the constitution will still survive, even though it has been so badly punctured in this respect. I am extremely sorry to have offended against the rules of the House.

Topic:   THE WILLIAM DAVIES COMPANY.
Subtopic:   MR. SPEAKER RULES OUT OF ORDER LETTER COMMENTING ON SPEECH OF AN HONOURABLE MEMBER.
