HC Deb 15 February 1907 vol 169 c423
MR. REES (Montgomery Boroughs) said

On a point of privilege, Sir. I beg to ask your ruling, if a newspaper attributes to one hon. Member the substance of a speech made by another hon. Member, and subsequently, when an explanation is demanded, publishes only a portion of the aggrieved, hon. Member's letter, and calls it his explanation, whether in that case a breach of privilege has or has not been committed?


Call them out.


The hon. Member has not specifically called my attention to the matter until he rose just now. It is rather difficult, at a moment's notice, to give a reply, and I should recommend him to take a legal opinion first.
