PRIVILEGE

MR. HOWARD REFERENCE TO REMARKS IN DEBATE ON JANUARY 31

CCF

Frank Howard

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Frank Howard (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, I wonder if I might rise on a question of privilege regarding some remarks of mine and another hon. member which appear in Hansard for yesterday on page 1607. During the debate, as recorded on that page, an unidentified hon. member said:

What about divorce?

Then in the heat of the moment I replied, and my remarks appear on page 1608, as follows:

My hon. friend may be desirous of obtaining one or he may need one, but that is his problem not mine.

I should like to express my regret, Mr. Speaker, and apologize to the hon. member, whoever he was, for having made that statement.

I request the permission of the house to revert to motions at that time, in order that I may make the announcement at 5.45 p.m.

I think the house has heard the minister's request that he be given leave to revert to motions this afternoon at 5.45 p.m. so that he may make an announcement which can be conveniently made at that time and not now. Has the minister unanimous consent?
