PROVISION FOR APPROPRIATION OP $1,365,000,000 FOR WAR PURPOSES, DEMOBILIZATION, PROMOTION OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY, ET CETERA
The house resumed consideration of the motion of Mr. Ilsley that the house go into committee to consider a resolution to grant to His Majesty certain sums of money for the carrying out of measures deemed necessary or advisable in consequence of the war.
Mr. ST. LAURENT: Mr. Speaker, when the house took recess at six o'clock I was endeavouring to explain what had been done with the report presented in 1944 to the Canadian Bar Association. I have just one further word on that to complete the matter. The motion that had been made contained three recommendations, which are found on page 52 of the report of the annual meeting. He then added:
I therefore move the three last-named recommendations. And as to the rest of the report I move that the report be tabled, received and discussed either here or by the executive committee, to implement what is therein contained.
There was considerable discussion, and finally Mr. James E. Day said this, which is found at the foot of page 59:
Let the committee continue and put the recommendations in concrete form, seventeen suggestions, let these be put in printed form, and let the whole matter of their consideration come up on Friday.
