Mr. WARNER:

I feel that it would be no benefit to us to defeat the government at the present time. We have their promise that they are going to lower the tariff to a greater extent than any other government has done in Canada.

Mr. WARNER:

I do not care to discuss that question now offhand. I think the hon. gentleman knows better than I do just what is involved. I repeat that I am not ready to give a vote of want of confidence in the government just for the sake of putting them out. Of course it will not be done; I know that amendment cannot carry, still if I am honest and vote according to my conscience, as I try to do, I would want that to carry; but if I voted for it that would mean that I

wish the government to be put out of business, if I understand it rightly. Now, I am not ready to put them out of business, because I want to hold them to their promises in tariff reductions with a chance to see results. That is the p.oint-we want results, results in the form of legislation that will give greater freedom for development to the basic industries of this country, and we will join our efforts with those of any other hon. members of this House who are ready to work with us on that line.

On motion of Mr. LeSueur, the debate was adjourned.

On motion of Mr. Graham, the House adjourned at 10.59 p.m.
