Liberal

Mr. St. Laurent:

I said my information was that, with respect to several of these contracts, they would be completed at a cost that would be less than the amount that was still unpaid by the government, including the deposits that had been made.

Mr. Daniel Mclvor (Fort William):

Mr. Speaker, on a question of personal privilege, I think we would do well to think of the great words of the Divine Teacher when He said:

He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone . . .

My personal privilege is that I dare not cast a stone, because I have been guided by the advice of a personal friend. I have been widely accused of the sin of idolatry because of my admiration for a man who is the champion cutter of red tape in Canada, the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Howe).

INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS

TELEGRAMS RECEIVED BY CHAIRMAN OF CRIMINAL LAW COMMITTEE

LIB

Donald Ferguson Brown

Liberal

Mr. D. F. Brown (Essex Wesl):

Since the

beginning of our work on the criminal law committee, which is revising and consolidating the Criminal Code, I, as chairman, have received numerous letters and telegrams, most of which have not been of a complimentary nature. In the past few days, Mr. Speaker, I have received some 70 telegrams, all in the French language, addressed to me as chairman of the industrial relations committee. I am not, and never have been, chairman of the industrial relations committee. I therefore take much pleasure in sending these telegrams to the hon. member for Edmonton East (Mr. Macdonald), who has been chairman of that committee.

LIB

Douglas Charles Abbott (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Mr. Abbott:

I move that the estimates be

referred to the committee of supply. I am sure the house will be pleased to know that the amount of these supplementary estimates is less than the amount that has been presented to the house as supplementary estimates in the last seven years.
