Mr. J. S. Sinnott (Springfield):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege, having to do with an editorial in the Manitoba Commonwealth of March 19, 1949, referring to myself. The editorial reads in part as follows:
The average income of a skilled railway worker is now about $2,600 a year. Mr. Sinnott, the Liberal M.P., does not consider this a very big income, as incomes go, but he considers it too much for rail-waymen.
I deny that statement emphatically; I never said any such thing. In fact this is a dodge of the socialist party. They are holding their convention in my riding on April 9.
