Mr. RODNEY ADAMSON (York West):
Mr. Speaker, as a member of the library committee may I say that this motion came up in that committee during the war, and was shelved until such time as the war ended and
National Housing Act
consideration could be given to it. I was in favour of taking some suitable action, and I believe my position had the support of the majority of the committee.
While I agree that the joint committee on the library of parliament may not be the proper body to carry out all the work at this stage, I believe this proposal would be a proper first step, in order that some day we may have a suitable national library in Canada.
Subtopic: MOTION FOR REFERENCE TO JOINT COMMITTEE ON LIBRARY OF PARLIAMENT
