Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):
Mr. Speaker, may I add, with the consent of the house, one word to what I have already said because of the Prime Minister's reply? Under the terms of reference as incorporated in this motion it is open to any hon. member to discuss each of the substantive matters referred to, that is to say, the report of the corporation; to review the policies and aims of the corporation; its regulations, revenues-and under that I suggest I could discuss soap-expenditures and development, and so on. Surely it cannot be held under the Prime Minister's suggestion that we cannot discuss those matters. If so, we might as well fold up again. The mere setting up of the committee does not confer any opportunity for discussion that is worth while for the country. What we want to discuss are the terms of reference and the subject matters to which they refer.
