DOMINION-PROVINCIAL CONFERENCE QUESTION AS TO DISCUSSION OF CIVILIAN DEFENCE


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Graydon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Graydon (Peel):

I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister. In view of the rising consciousness in the United States, and in Canada as well, of the importance of civilian defence, is it the intention of the Prime Minister and the premiers of the provinces to discuss this matter at the forthcoming dominion-provincial conference?

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

The dominion-provincial conference is a conference upon general topics, and I would imagine that we would be discussing

all the responsibilities of the several levels of government, and the way in which these responsibilities can be met within the tax dollar.

Mr. Abbott:

This bill, as in the case of the insurance bills, was referred to the banking and commerce committee for detailed examination. The provisions of the bill were approved by the superintendent of insurance. Although I am not a member of the banking and commerce committee, I understand that these provisions received careful consideration there. The amendments are analogous to those made to the insurance act, to provide for some amendments in the investment powers of the bill, and I think they should prove satisfactory to the committee.

Mr. Adamson:

The minister is not a member of the banking and commerce committee. That is unusual, because his predecessor was always a member of that committee, was he not?

Speaking from memory I cannot say, Mr. Chairman. Perhaps he was. Of course if it became necessary for me to be
