GENERAL H. D. G. CRERAR TRIBUTES ON DEATH OF FIRST CANADIAN ARMY COMMANDER

LIB

Lester Bowles Pearson (Prime Minister)

Liberal

Right Hon. L. B. Pearson (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, I am sure the house will be saddened to learn that an hour or two ago a member of the privy council passed away. He was also the commander of the only Canadian army we have had in the field; I refer to General H. D. G. Crerar.

As hon. members know, he was a man who served Canada for more than half a century in war and in peace with quiet efficiency, with sincerity and with great devotion. We shall miss him greatly-especially those of us privileged to be his friends-and we are grateful for what he has done for our country. I shall send my deep and heartfelt sympathy to Mrs. Crerar and to the family.

Hon. Gordon Churchill (Winnipeg South Centre):

Mr. Speaker, it is with great sorrow that we have learned of the sudden passing of our wartime commander. Those of us who

had the privilege of serving under General Crerar had the greatest admiration for his work and for the courage and inspiration that he transmitted to the forces under his command. He served with distinction as commander of Canada's first army in the field. On behalf of this party I should like to express our sympathy to his family.

Mr. T. C. Douglas (Burnaby-Coquitlam):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to associate the members of this party with the expressions of regret which have just been enunciated by the Prime Minister and the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre. We too would like to express our great appreciation of the service which General Crerar has rendered this country both in war and in peace. At the invitation of General McNaughton it was my privilege during the war to visit the Canadian forces overseas, particularly Saskatchewan troops, and I shall always be grateful for the kindness and hospitality which were extended to me by General Crerar. I have very happy memories of that brief association with him and of the several occasions on which I have met him since. I think he was a great soldier and a fine Canadian, and we pay tribute to his memory.

Mr. R. N. Thompson (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, we too associate ourselves with the words of the Prime Minister on the passing of General Crerar. Truly Canada has lost one of her great citizens. All of us who have known him personally understand just how well he served this country. I am sure the people of the nation will join with us in our expression of sorrow and sympathy to the members of his family. Canada has lost a man who truly served her well. We have known of his illness and of the difficult days he has had in recent months. I am sure many of his friends have appreciated in a special way his services to Canada.

THE BUDGET

INQUIRY AS TO PROBABLE DATE OF PRESENTATION


On the orders of the day:


PC

George Clyde Nowlan

Progressive Conservative

Hon. George C. Nowlan (Digby-Annapolis-Kings):

Mr. Speaker, in view of the statement of the Prime Minister the other day that it is not proposed to proceed with the budget until after the Easter recess, which is different from what was planned originally, is the Prime Minister in a position to state that immediately after the Easter recess and the conclusion of the debate on the address in reply to the speech from the throne the budget will be introduced?

Right Hon. L. B. Pearson (Prime Minister):

All I can say, Mr. Speaker, because I have to make a reservation for any emergency that might develop, is that it is the intention to introduce the budget very shortly after the resumption of parliament following the Easter recess.
