BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

SPECIAL LOAN BILL


On Motions being called:


LIB

William Stevens Fielding (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Hon. W. S. FIELDING (Minister of Finance):

May I be permitted to supplement the statement made by the right hon. the Prime Minister on Saturday regarding legislation yet to be submitted. It has been customary to take a borrowing power by a clause in the Appropriation Act which comes in at the last stage of the session. In view, however, of the large amount of maturing loans, I think it is better we should have a special loan bill, and a bill for that purpose confined entirely to the meeting of the obligations maturing will be introduced.
