Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

The rule is clear that when an answer is given to a question which affects the honour of this house, or when a minister of a provincial government makes a statement which is at variance with that, we have a right as members to raise the question of the privilege of the house when its honour is impugned by the answer to that question.

Topic:   PRIVILEGE-MR. ESLING
