Conservative (1867-1942)

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

I have not discussed the matter

with my colleagues but in view of the discussion that has taken place in the committee with respect to the provisions of the Bank Act and also with respect to the Bank of Canada Act I would have thought with respect to the amendments to which my hon. friend refers, following as they do as a matter of course from the enactment of that legislation, that it would not be necessary to refer them to the committee. That was my view.

PUBLIC WORKS PROGRAM


On the orders of the day:


LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING:

Referring to the program of legislation given earlier in the week I notice that no reference was made to the public works construction program. Can the Prime Minister now indicate when the program is likely to be brought down? I mean the program he described as being like Jonah's gourd.

Mr. BENNETT:

The gourd did, but not Jonah. He suffered a different fate. I should think that between now and Saturday we shall be able to settle the schedule. It is only a question of settling the schedule. The plans and specifications with respect to many of the works have been completed, and everything is ready to call for tenders when the enactment receives the approval of this house. All that remains is the question of what is to be included in the schedule, and what not. That has not been definitely settled, and I am sure that the experience of the right hon. gentleman on more than one occasion will indicate to him just how difficult that task has been.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

If the right hon. gentleman is able to settle upon the schedules by the end of the week, would it be possible to have them brought into the house early next week? I ask this because we are still looking for the amendment to the elections act which I understand has been settled for some time but which has not been brought down as yet.
