The Speaker

Before we begin the daily routine of business I address myself directly to the Minister of Human Resources Development.

Yesterday there was a question of privilege introduced by the hon. member for Acadie—Bathurst with regard to an alleged leaking of a document, specifically the bill. Is the minister prepared to address that at this point, or will she do it after question period?
