Peters referred to Privileges Committee

The Speeaker has ruled that there is a question of privilege over the $100,000 gift from to pay off Winston’s legal bills, so the Privileges Committee will hold hearings on this.

It would be imprudent to speculate on what the conclusion will be, as that will or should depend on the evidence. But it does mean this issue will be in the public domain for some time to come.

Apart from the televised hearings of the Privileges Committee, the report back to the House will be subject to a debate – normally two hours or so.
