Mr. WILLIAM IRVINE (East Calgary):

In view of the fact that the provincial government of Nova Scotia has not appointed a commission upon which the Prime Minister based his refusal to take action, and in view of the fact that a deadlock still persists and the conditions of distress still prevail, does the government now intend to take any action.

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

I am unable to say whether it is the present intention of the Minister of Defence. I do not think he will have any objection but I would rather the hon. member would permit the matter to stand till the minister himself is present, when he will be in a position to give a definite answer.

William Garland McQuarrie

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. W. G. McQUARRIE (New Westminster) :

When does the government propose

that the committees of this House should get down to business? Last year there were no meetings of committees until after the Easter adjournment, I think, and the session was prolonged into July. Is the same thing going to happen this year? Would it not be possible to have committees sitting immediately so that we might get down to business?

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

That, I think, is a matter for members of the committees themselves to decide. If my hon. friend is on a committee and would like it to meet, he has only to ask the whip to see that it be called together.
