Howard Charles Green

Mr. GREEN:

These are reports dealing

with recruiting. We get reports in the house from time to time with respect to recruiting, and I say they do not come in that category at all. I am not willing to have the motion dropped.

Mr. RALSTON:

Yes, we get reports in the house, but from a minister; the hon. member does not get reports from officials. The reports asked for here are reports from officials of the department, which from time immemorial have been regarded as confidential. I submit the motion should be dropped.

Motion dropped.

James Lorimer Ilsley (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. ILSLEY:

I am talking about Canadian precedents. An entirely different system obtains in the United States of America. This government will have to decide toward the close of the conference what its position will be, and will have to do so on the advice of its delegation. If a representative were taken from the Progressive Conservative party, then it seems to me the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation party would have a fairly good claim to have their school of thought represented, as would also the Social Credit party.
