Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prime Minister):

As all hon. members know, today is the birthday anniversary of the world's most revered statesman and the most distinguished member of Canada's privy council, Right Hon. Sir Winston Churchill, already immortal in his lifetime. He is the leader whose indomitable courage, wisdom and peerless oratory made invincible the legions of freedom during world war II.

I therefore move, seconded by the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Pearson):

That this house extend to the Right Hon. Sir Winston Churchill, K.G., congratulations and best wishes on this, his 86th birthday.

Hon. L. B. Pearson (Leader of ihe Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to have been asked to second this motion of congratulations and affectionate good wishes to a man whom we all revere and who, on his 86th birthday, is facing and overcoming a temporary disability in the same way he has faced everything else in a career which is unmatched, as the Prime Minister has said, in our time, namely with courage and cheerful assurance.

Sir Winston is indeed a man for the ages, resolute in the face of danger, indomitable in crisis, far seeing and wise in triumph. So on behalf of our party, Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to join the Prime Minister in congratulations to this most distinguished member of Her Majesty's privy council for Canada.

Mr. Hazen Argue (Assiniboia):

Mr. Speaker, in the words they have used in proposing and seconding this motion the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition have not only spoken for all members of parliament but for all Canadians and indeed for all free men throughout the world.

Sir Winston Churchill has been called the greatest of all Englishmen. Certainly he stands above all others in having pointed out the dangers that were facing the world in the 1930's and having himself in no small degree been instrumental in bringing the free world through those dark days to victory.

We join with the others in sending him from this parliament our warmest congratulations and the assurance of our great admiration and respect.

Mr. Grant Campbell (Slormont):

Mr. Speaker, this is also the anniversary of Scotland's patron saint. Whether we like it or not, and whether it is for better or for worse, Canada is what the French and the Scots have made it.

William Moore Benidickson

Mr. Benidickson:

The bill is similar in form to the bill introduced by me last year. It proposes to expand the terms of the industrial development bank in essence to provide loans under that statute to the retail trade and to those engaged in the tourist industry and catering to the public in hotels, and so on.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
