Liberal

Mr. SPEAKER:

Order. The question of privilege has been stated, the answer has been given. Now, I leave the chair for the house to go into committee of supply.
Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Finance): I suggest that the wrongful use of a frank is a matter within Your Honour's control as Speaker of the house. Allegations have been made and in turn denied. The questions. I presume, are questions of fact.
I have not seen the frank, and I am not attempting to judge as to the correctness of my hon. friend's statement. I am merely remarking that it is a matter for Your Honour to deal with.

Topic:   PRIVILEGE-MR. DUFF
