USE OF TRUCKS BY FARMERS ON SUNDAYS

Mr. J. G. DIEFENBAICER (Lake Centre):

On June 12, I asked the Minister of Munitions and Supply what attitude the government intended to take regarding the removal of the discrimination against farmers with regard to the use of their trucks for transportation purposes. On the same day the Minister of Finance finally stated, as reported in Hansard, page 3307:

The matter will be looked into, and in so far as there is discrimination that it is practicable to remove, it will be removed.

The same state of affairs still prevails and is causing a great deal of trouble among farmers all over the country-

Mr. DIEFENBAKER:

And dissatisfaction as well. Is the minister now in a position to say whether the removal of this discrimination has been considered, and if so, whether an order has been made, or will be made at once, to remove this source of annoyance and difficulty?

Hon. J. L. ILSLEY (Minister of Finance):

Well, Mr. Speaker, just after the hon. gentleman discussed the matter in the house I made inquiries, and I was informed that an order had been issued authorizing certain regional officials to make provision for certain cases, and that that order was outstanding at that time. The hon. gentleman's remarks were brought to the attention of the proper officers, and I was told that provision had already been made for attending to particular cases. The rule was not changed, as far as that goes, but certain discretionary powers were vested in the regional officers.

Mr. DIEFENBAKER:

If I may be permitted, the only order I know of is that a farmer may apply, for instance, in any one province, to an official at the capital of that province, for permission to use his truck on a particular Sunday for transportation purposes. That is quite an impossible situation. I again ask the minister to bring to the attention of the authorities the difficulty experienced by farmers through the failure of the government to remove this regulation.

STATEMENT AS TO DISTRIBUTION OF FRENCH TRANSLATION OF BUDGET RESOLUTIONS


On the orders of the day:

James Lorimer Ilsley (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Hon. J. L. ILSLEY (Minister of Finance):

Mr. Speaker, the hon. member for Quebec West and South (Mr. Parent) yesterday, before the orders of the day were called, complained about the failure of the government to make available in the French language the ways and means resolutions. His words were these-Hansard, page 3865:

How can we judge the importance of the budget until we know the items which will be fought out, or amended if it is possible, without having knowledge of the budget in itemized form? I believe this situation should be remedied without delay, and for my part I am not prepared to support the budget until I have-read what is in it. Until that time I must, be counted as against the budget as a whole. When it comes into committee of ways and means, I reserve my right to discuss the items after I have been able to read them in my own language.

I find that all the ways and means resolutions were printed in the French language on

Private Bills

June 23 or June 24, as part of my budget speech, in Hansard, and I find also that they were printed in French on June 23 or June 24 in Votes and Proceedings. It is true that subsequently they were again printed, separately, for convenience of hon. members; the separate printing in English was made available about Tuesday of this week, and I was informed yesterday that they would be available in French to-day.

JACK SIMON


The house in committee on Bill No. 31, for the relief of Jack Simon-Mr. Bercovitch- Mr. Fournier (Hull) in the chair. On section 1-Marriage dissolved.

Ernest George Hansell

Mr. HANSELL:

Mr. Chairman, since you are on Bill No. 31 I wish to make a few remarks in connection with these bills in general. I might have done so before Mr. Speaker left the chair, but I simply choose this bill, not because it is in any way particularly distinct from the others, but because the evidence submitted is so voluminous that it attracted my attention. Usually when I receive the printed evidence in these cases I immediately consign them to the wastepaper basket, on the assumption that if you read one of them you have read them all. This particular case, however, is fatter than the others; it takes 140 pages to cover the evidence.

I have taken the trouble to read every bit of the evidence in this case, and I find nothing in it which could be taken as a reason for the granting of a divorce. As we all know, in Canada the only ground upon which a divorce can be granted in any province or by this parliament is proof of adultery.
