First of all I thank the hon. member for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell for bringing this matter to the House, the hon. member for Victoria who has made a helpful intervention, and the parliamentary secretary on behalf of the government.
Some mention has been made that this matter arose in a committee and hon. members will have heard me say many times that usually matters should be put back to committee. My own feeling is that under the circumstances which have been explained to me that is not the convenient or appropriate thing to do at this time.
I have listened carefully to what was said. I think this is an appropriate case for the Chair to rule that there is a prima facie case for privilege. I would ask the hon. member for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell to move his motion.
