The hon. member's colleague yesterday did withdraw the word. The Chair did not rule that the word bribe was an unparliamentary word. It leaves the Speaker in an awkward position if the member is going to take the view that it is a parliamentary word.
The Oxford Concise Dictionary , page 161, defines
bribe'' as a verb:to act especially illegally or dishonestly in one's favour by gift of money, services, et cetera''. Bribed the guard to release the suspect is given as an example. Second, a noun: ``money or services offered in the process of bribing''.
It seems to me that, as was suggested earlier, this dictionary at least suggests there is an illegal purpose involved. It is correct that Beauchesne's does not appear to put "bribe" on its list of unparliamentary words, at least what I can see quickly.
I would invite my colleague, in view of what has been stated in the dictionary, to agree to withdraw the word in the interests of amicable, open debate.
