Mr. G. G. COOTE (Macleod):
Mr. Speaker. I rise to a question of privilege. Last night, or rather early this morning, we were discussing a certain resolution regarding the appropriation to the harbour commissioners of the port of Quebec. After the hon. member for Quebec County (Mr. Lavigueur) had spoken I rose in my place and put a question to the minister, and the chairman ruled that I could not put the question as he had called for yeas and nays before I rose. I wish to repeat what I said last night, Mr. Speaker, that I was on my feet when the question was put. If the chairman did not see me I do not see how that could be ruled as being my fault. I appeal to you, Sir, as I understand that you are responsible for the proper procedure being carried on in this House.
