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.
