Hugh Guthrie (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GUTHRIE:

The bill appeared to be

a very worthy one. It is true it was introduced by an hon. member opposite, and we on this side of the house thought it was a bill' that merited our support. It was a matter of great surprise when we noticed that the bill was dropped from the order paper, and the desire of the government is to restore it in order that the house may fully discuss it. I understand the hon. member for Cartier (Mr. Jacobs) no longer desires to sponsor it, and the government has no objection to sponsoring so worthy a measure.

May I say to the Minister of Justice I know the child will be well taken care of by him? This is the second child that he has adopted, that belonged to me and of which I am glad to own to paternity. I only hope it will be as well taken care of as my first.
