Mr. Manion:

I rise to a point of order. I do

not think the Prime Minister has any right to use the word "untrue" in regard to a statement made by any member of this house.

January 25, 1940

Mr. MANION:

It is in parliament since parliament has been called. We shall have it on the hustings too. But the place to have questions answered is here in parliament. With the parliament of Canada dissolved how can I get information, without any returns, without any questions being answered? I do not expect that any of the ministers will give me much help. The place to give that information is here in the House of Commons. The place to discuss these matters is here in the House of Commons. I submit that this government has been extravagant; it has been careless; not only has it been unprepared but it has been deplorably weak in carrying on the war activities of this country. I say that;

Dissolution of Parliament

and this is the place for me to get the information I want to prove my case, not out on the hustings where the ministers will simply deny that the facts are there.
