March 2, 1927 (16th Parliament, 1st Session)


Charles Marcil


The ACTING SPEAKER (Mr. Marcil):

rule applicable in this case is rule 19, which reads:
No member shall speak disrespectfully of His Majesty nor of any of the royal family; nor of the governor or person administering the government of Canada; nor use offensive words against either House, or against any member thereof; nor speak beside the question in debate.
In practice in my experience, certain latitude has been allowed in debate in the House by way of illustration, but in discussing questions of this kind the rule of relevancy must apply, and the hon. member addressing the chair must speak to the question before the House.

Topic:   REVISED
