Mr. A. A. HEAPS (Winnipeg North):
On many occasions, Mr. Speaker, I have found it necessary to criticize adversely certain of the measures which have been introduced by the government. On this occasion I am more than pleased to be able to congratulate the government, and I am very happy to have the privilege of doing so. In many respects this legislation will be far-reaching in its effects. Personally I think $20 per month may be a little low for persons of the age of forty, but I hope this may be just a beginning and that as the years go by we may be able to increase the amount.
Motion agreed to and the house went into committee, Mr. Sanderson in the chair.
Subtopic: AMENDMENT TO INCLUDE CERTAIN CLASSES OF BLIND PERSONS
