Mr. THOMAS REID (New Westminster):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. When the house opened this afternoon the leader of the C.C.F. read a telegram he had received from Vancouver from a man named Shelldrake, who, I understand, signs himself as C.C.F. organizer for the Fraser Valley. I rise particularly on this occasion because I hold before me .a copy of the Vancouver News-Herald of Saturday, May 13, in which this newspaper recites what I had said in the House of Commons; and here is the statement it makes:
The management of the News-Herald has not been officially approached on the subject by the C.C.F. party, but a number of subscribers who said they were adherents of the party have telephoned and stated they would cancel their subscriptions unless a more favourable attitude toward the C.C.F. party was adopted.

Topic:   PRIVILEGE-MR. COLDWELL REFERENCE TO REMARKS OF MR. REID IN DEBATE ON MAY 16
