AUDIBILITY OF DEBATE


On the orders of the day:


LIB

George Alexander Cruickshank

Liberal

Mr. G. A. CRUICKSHANIC (Fraser Valley) :

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to you, and I hope I am loud enough. Last year the member for Macleod (Mr. Hansell) brought up a most interesting subject. Just now I have been listening to the best of my ability to a private discussion between the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition, and I have not the faintest idea what either of them has said. According to the press you ruled, sir, after a delightful trip to Mexico or somewhere, that microphones were not needed in this house. The most important part of this house in bringing representations to the people of Canada is the press gallery. We cannot hear a word that is being said from the front benches; how then can the press gallery hear? With all deference to your ruling, sir, I would ask that further consideration be given the question of installing microphones or some' other effective device.

FERTILIZERS ACT AMENDMENT

INGREDIENTS ENTERING INTO PRODUCTION- PROPERTIES OF FERTILIZERS


Right Hon. J. G. GARDINER (Minister of Agriculture) moved the third reading of Bill No. 9, to amend the Fertilizers Act.


PC

Karl Kenneth Homuth

Progressive Conservative

Mr. HOMUTH:

Last night the minister

suggested that he would be willing to fix a certain time limit, and while that is not in the bill I suggest to him that the house could take it for granted, on his word to that effect, that this measure is to extend only to the time of the calling of another session. It is true the bill gives the minister wide enough powers, but could we not have an understanding-we will take his word for it; I would, though thousands would not-that it will extend, let us say, only until next session?

James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. GARDINER:

I did say in the discussion yesterday that if it were the desire of the committee to have a time limit put in I was satisfied to have that done. The committee passed the bill as it was, but there is nothing to prevent anyone next session from bringing the matter up again and having a discussion on it, and I shall be prepared to consider it then.

Motion agreed to and bill read the third time and passed.
