Hon. Alvin Hamilton (Qu'Appelle-Moose Mountain):
Mr. Speaker, my question is to the Prime Minister. In view of the Napoleonic retreat last night of the Minister of Finance from the silly and unworkable export tax on resource industries, would the Prime Minister now give an answer to my proposal of December 19 last which I will repeat for him:
... would the Prime Minister give serious consideration over the next three or four weeks to re-examining the whole course that the government is taking because I believe it is heading us toward a recession, and would he turn the whole program of the government around into one of expansion so as to give the government time to get at the basic cause of inflation, which this program is not doing?
Could 7 have an answer to that question.
