Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. WHITE.

Mr. Speaker, I do not wish to call your judgment in question, but if the point you make is that the hon. member for South York is out of order in saying that the right hon. the Prime Minister is paying his political debts, it seems to me that is straining the rule.

Mr. SPEAKER.

The hon. gentleman (Mr. White), as I understand it, misconceives what the hon. member (Mr. W. F. Maclean) has said. As I understood him, he said that the Prime Minister was attempting to pay his political debts by sacrificing the civil rights of the people.

Mr. SPEAKER.

In my judgment and under my ruling, that is an offensive statement in reference to the Prime Minister, which the hon. gentleman must withdraw. If I am wrong in that, he has his remedy.

Mr. Speaker, I must bow and withdraw, and I will have an opportunity elsewhere of saying what my opinion is. And now, Mr. Speaker, I want to say this, that we have government in this country

I am again in the judgment of the House, when I call a gentleman to order who says to another member who is speaking, directing his reference to the Speaker : Don't let him bluff you.

I rise to a point of order. I rise to take the full responsibility in this House for what I have said. I say that the member for South York ought not to be bluffed by any authority in this House.
