EXPRESSION OF THANKS BY MR. HARRIS (DAN-FORTH) FOR CONGRATULATIONS ON THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF ELECTION TO PARLIAMENT

PC

Joseph Henry Harris

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. H. Harris (Danforth):

Mr. Speaker, on behalf of my constituents, who by unanimous resolution have asked me to do so, I should like to have the privilege of thanking the Prime Minister (Mr. St. Laurent), the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Drew), and the then acting leaders of the C.C.F. and Social Credit parties, for what was said by them on December 6 last on the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of my election to parliament.

At the same time I should like to express my appreciation of the kind remarks of the whip of our party, and of the letters received from you, Mr. Speaker, and from many other members of this assembly. My constituents demand that I discharge this responsibility, and I do so most sincerely.

While I am on my feet, and in order that it may not be necessary to detain the house on another occasion, I want to thank the government for its great kindness in lending me the services of the Minister of National Health and Welfare (Mr. Martin), who on Saturday last honoured the city of Toronto by attending a meeting of some fifteen hundred people who met to pay tribute to the great work he has done for the health and welfare of this country.

Mr. MacDougall:

On previous occasions I have taken time to explain the purpose of the bill. I am quite satisfied that everyone in the house knows that purpose as well as I do, and I do not think an additional explanation over and above the two already given is required.
