Mr. JAMES SINCLAIR (Vancouver North):

I can certainly substantiate that. That was the effect of the communication I received from the hon. member for Yukon, which I think makes our case all the stronger in that there should be no differentiation between ridings. On this matter of privilege, as a member of parliament, I did consider that when the accounts of a member of parliament were submitted to a servant of parliament and were refused, it was quite proper to draw Your Honour's attention to that fact in the House of Commons. I can also say that as a member of parliament I think your statement is not very satisfactory.
