Mr. MacINNIS:

Well, one member on this side says "hear, hear" and another says ''speak for yourself", which goes to prove, that there is a difference of opinion. There is very little difference of opinion in this group, but I understand the same difference of opinion holds with the Social Credit group.

That is our position. We are quite willing to facilitate and expedite the business of the house when we see that there is an attempt on all sides to do so.

Will the minister undertake in every way to assist in obtaining priorities on timber and steel for the repair work? A serious situation has developed in that area, and only today I have received requests for help in obtaining priorities.
