Mr. G. W. McPHEE (Yorkton):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege in connection with a matter that concerns the dignity of the members of the House of Commons and
contravenes the House of Commons Act, being chapter 145 of the revised statutes of Canada. I refer to an article which appears in this morning's Citizen, written by Miss McGee of the Canadian Press. This is headed "Women MJP.'s Give Verdict on Best Looking Men in House." Perhaps I should read just a few short paragraphs of this article in order to lay a foundation for what I am about to say. The article reads:
While the members of the House of Commons have been debating legislation in long hours of argument, the two women members have had ample opportunity to consider their masculine confreres from the standpoint of pulchritude. Yesterday they disclosed their preferences.
They then give their reasons.
