Mr. Victor Quelch (Acadia):

I wish to address a question to the Prime Minister. In the earlier part of the session the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Gardiner) stated that it was his intention to introduce amendments to the Prairie Farm Assistance Act. The Prime Minister did not mention that in his list.

Right Hon. L. S.@

There is notice on the order paper of the introduction of a bill to amend the Prairie Farm Assistance Act, 1939. It was not proceeded with yesterday or today

because, although the law officers had expressed the opinion that it did not require a resolution, we were afraid that there might be some discussion on the point. We thought it would be time lost to have such a discussion, and that it would be easier to bring in a resolution than to waste time deciding whether or not one was required.

SALES TAX

CIGARETTES AND TOBACCO


On the orders of the day:


LIB

James Hendrick Rooney

Liberal

Mr. J. H. Rooney (Si. Paul's):

I should like to direct a question to the Acting Minister of National Revenue and have him take it as notice and give an answer as soon as possible, but before the session ends. For some time I have been asking for consideration of the question of abolishing the tax on sales of cigarettes and tobacco to veterans in military hospitals. I believe all members on both sides of the house would like to see this accomplished.
