INCURABLES

REFERENCE TO PETITION REQUESTING ASSISTANCE BY WAY OF PENSION

SC

Ernest George Hansell

Social Credit

Mr. E. G. Hansell (Macleod):

Mr. Speaker, I hold in my hand a petition signed by over twenty thousand incurables, who are asking for assistance by way of pension. It was the intention to have this presented to parliament in the regular way, but on looking over the wording of the petition I doubt whether it is strictly in order. I am therefore advising the Canadian Association of Incurables and the .Shut-in Friends' Association to present the petition directly to the government.
