Armand Renaud La Vergne (Deputy Speaker and Chair of Committees of the Whole of the House of Commons)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. DEPUTY SPEAKER:

I do not want to be unfair to the hon. member, but the rule is very clear. It does not only cover articles commenting upon the conduct of the house; otherwise Hansard would be full of editorials or the opinions of authors. Members are here to express their own opinions. So far as I am concerned, personally I am quite indifferent; if by general consent the house allows the hon. member to proceed certainly I have no objection, but I must insist that the rule is there and should be complied with. Certainly if the house consents I have no objection to the hon. member proceedings^
