PC

Alan Cockeram

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Cockeram:

Mr. Speaker, I object to

this whole proceeding, because I have never obtained an honest or frank statement from the minister on any question I have asked in this house. He always comes back with a flippant reply which does not mean a thing.

Douglas Charles Abbott (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. Abbott:

If I were given to rising on

questions of privilege I would ask my hon. friend to withdraw the statement that he has never received an honest statement from me, but knowing my hon. friend as well as I do I will not bother to ask him to withdraw it.

George Alexander Drew (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Drew:

Mr. Speaker, because of the

particular manner of the reply that has been made by the minister, there can be no doubt whatever that the words implied a special interest on the part of the member, and he should withdraw that imputation.

Alan Cockeram

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Cockeram:

I am not prepared to let it go at that. The manner in which the minister made that statement implied dishonesty or some such thing on my part, and I want him to withdraw.

LIB

James Horace King (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. Speaker:

I believe both sides of the house have accepted the statement made by the hon. member, and the statement made by the minister. I do not believe the character either of the member or of the minister has been assailed. There is no doubt about the honesty of either, and I think both sides should be satisfied.
