Thomas Clement (Tommy) Douglas

New Democratic Party

Mr. Douglas:

If Your Honour is recognizing these peculiar circumstances, I should like to say that I prefer not to make any commitment at this time. However, I should be glad to discuss the proposals that have been made both by the leader of the house for the government and by the hon. member for Bona-vista-Twillingate. I should be glad to discuss them with my colleagues in the morning and to let the Minister of Veterans Affairs know the result in plenty of time before the house opens.

John Whitney Pickersgill

Liberal

Mr. Pickersgill:

I think that is a very sensible suggestion, and I concur in it. I hope that in one way or another we can use this time to better advantage than in discussing the motion that is set down for tomorrow. We recognize that there is some public business that ought to be concluded.
