Mr. MACKENZIE KING:
Mr. Speaker, I feel I should direct the attention of the hon. member to the wording of his question. It is not so worded as to permit of its being placed on the order paper; nor do I think it is worded in accordance wth what the hon. member himself has in mind. The first part of his question is:
Is the union jack, national flag of England, also the national flag of Canada?
In these words is an assertion that the union jack is the national flag of England. This assertion is not correct. Apart from this, questions on the order paper are not supposed to be placed there for the purpose of making statements or allegations but for the sake of acquiring information. A Scotsman might take exception to the union jack being regarded as the national flag of England^-
