INQUIRY AS TO FURTHER LEGISLATION TO BE BROUGHT DOWN

LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):

Now that the Minister of Finance (Mr. Rhodes) has brought down his budget I should1 like to ask the Prime Minister if he is in a position to indicate to the house whether we now have before us all the legislation that will be introduced this session with the exception of what may arise out of the resolutions now before the committee of ways and means and anything that may oome from other committees of the house. I should like to ask also whether the government intends to proceed at this session with the redistribution measure and if there is any possible way in which that measure might be expedited.

Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

The shipping bill now in the other chamber will be proceeded with and the pensions bill will be brought down. The redistribution bill will be proceeded with, and I think every reasonable effort is being made to expedite the work of that committee, at least that is my advice in that regard. Amendments to some existing statutes probably will have to be brought down, affecting possibly the Post Office Act, the Public Works Act, the Judges Act and the criminal code. Owing to the great difference of opinion that has been expressed by different public bodies with respect to the proposed legislation arising out of the Gibb report I am not in a position at the moment to say whether or not that bill will be proceeded with. It has been printed, but a great many public bodies in the cities affected have been directing communications to the government suggesting that the matter be delayed until they can further consider it. At the moment I cannot say whether or not. we will proceed with that measure at this session. I think two or three other statutes, the names of which I do not recall at the moment, will have to be amended as well. I will endeavour to indicate clearly on Monday, so far as one may do so with certainty, the legislation that will be proceeded with.

PRIVILEGE-MR. POWER


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Charles Gavan Power

Liberal

Mr. C. G. POWER (Quebec South):

As a matter of privilege I should like to state that during the course of some observations I made last week I stated in good faith that the Temiscouata Railway was held or controlled by the Canadian Pacific Railway, or the Quebee Central. I am informed by a telegram which I have just received from the president of the Temiscouata Railway that this is not the case, so I wish to correct any wrong impression I may have given.

PRIVILEGE MR. McINTOSH


On the orders of the day: Mr. CAMERON R. McINTOSH (North Rattleford): I rise to a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker. At page 2000 of House of Commons Debates, there appears the following statement: Mr. McIntosh: Is it not a fact -that a lot of dead horse railways in eastern Canada have been taken over as part of the Canadian National? I wish emphatically to deny that I uttered any letter, syllable, word, phrase or clause making up this statement; in fact I repudiate the statement and the sectional sentiment giving rise to it. Because of this attitude I ask that it be dissociated with my name in Hansard and accredited to the dead horse member, whoever he may be, who gave expression to such a deplorable spirit of small Canadianism.
