On the orders of the day:
Mr. ERRICK F. WILLTS (Souris): Mr. Speaker, on a question of privilege. Hansard of Friday, February 9, at page 440, reports the hon. member for Macdonald (Mr. Weir) as using the following words with regard to myself:
He knows his statement is fallacious and misleading to the highest degree.
I refer Your Honour to standing order 41 and for your reference I quote paragraph 297 of Beauchesne's Parliamentary Rules and Forms, as follows:
The imputation of bad motives, or motives different from those acknowledged, misrepresenting the language of another, or accusing him, in his turn, of misrepresentation, charging him with falsehood or deceit; or contemptuous or insulting language of any kind; all these are unparliamentary and call for prompt interference.
I submit that the words used by the hon. member for Macdonald come directly under that part of paragraph 297 which states, " the imputation of bad motives, or motives different from those acknowledged, misrepresenting the language of another," and I ask therefore that the statement be withdrawn and that it be expunged from Hansard.
