Liberal

Mr. ROBB:

I have no recollection at

the moment of any farmers' horses having been seized for income tax, and I am surprised * to hear that this has occurred. If my hon. friend will inform me of any particular case I shall look into it. I can assure the committee that the law will not be applied discriminatingly to any particular class in the country.

ADJOURNMENT-BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

CON

Henry Lumley Drayton

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

I think, Mr. Speaker, that the minister ought at this stage to move the adjournment of the House. We have done considerable business to-day and we have got through it good humouredly. We were kept here until half past one this

morning and I do submit to the minister that he should now move the adjournment.

Mr. ROBB:

I was here as late-or as

early-as was my hon. friend yesterday. We had an interesting day discussing higher politics yesterday and I should like to get down to some practical business now. As far as I remember, there was very little remaining to be done in connection with the Sales Tax bill, and if my hon. friend would be good enough to let that measure through I should be glad.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

The minister

undertook to give me some information regarding that legislation, and as a matter of fact there are questions on the order paper in reference to it not yet answered.

Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

Yesterday we got through a piece of work which ordinarily an opposition would be justified in discussing a good deal more than one day. It was at a late hour that we concluded last night and, speaking for myself, it was after two o'clock when I got home. Now the government is urging us at 11.15, after considerable work has been done, to proceed with further legislation- the same hon. gentlemen who when in opposition used to whine, after themselves delaying matters until midnight, if we tried to get a few things done before quitting.

Mr. SPENCER:

I understand that tomorrow afternoon was set aside for the debate on the question of extending the work of the Banking committee. Is that right?

Mr. ROBB:

I had a conversation with the chairman of the Banking and Commerce committee and I understood he had spoken to hon. gentlemen opposite. I may say that a number

of hon. gentlemen are leaving for Quebec city and they are anxious to be present when the debate takes place; some of them desire to speak on the subject. I understand too that there are some gentlemen who are absent. If it is agreeable to hon. members we will defer the debate for a few days until those who are away have returned.
