Mr. Hamilton (York West):
Mr. Speaker, on the point of order, I should only like to ask you to refer again to the meaning of the words "direct expenditure", as used by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre, in order to determine whether this will not be the direct result if this legislation is passed, that it may mean an increase of federal expenditures. I am not saying that it will, I doubt very much if it will, as far as present rates of pay are concerned. But it might, and I ask you to consider the effect of the words I have mentioned.
