The Acting Prime
Minister, this afternoon, made the position quite clear as to what the real significance of the resolution is, and there is no difference of opinion, on this side of the House at any rate, as to what is involved. I say that 'it would mean the plunging of this country into a general election, and that
is not desirable at this stage. It is wholly undesirable for several reasons, which I do not need to enumerate. I propose to vote against this resolution because it should not have been introduced at the present time. If the hon. gentleman wishes to press the principles contained in it, the proper time to do so is when the Budget has been brought dowm and when we are considering the future fiscal policy of the country.
Mr. McMlAlS'TER: If I withdraw this
motion will the Minister of Agriculture pledge himself to vote for a similar resolution later?
