Mr. Bud Bradley (Haldimand-Norfolk):

Madam Speaker, I believe that in the discussion between myself and the hon. Minister of National Health and Welfare (Miss Begin) there is a possibility that she referred to me as being dishonest which, of course, would discredit me in the eyes of my constituents.

Mr. Bradley:

1 should like to inform the minister that if she were to read the minutes, she would see that not only was I not dishonest but that I was correct and she was possibly questionable when we were discussing singing "O Canada" prior to those statements.

1 should like to inform the minister that I intend to reserve my right to a question of privilege on checking the blues.

Summer Recess

House leader a question with respect to this bill. Now that we are passing it in the House of Commons in the hope that it may soon become law, will the government House leader suggest, or do something else, that the senators come back so that they can pass the bill and it can become law? Surely he will agree with me that for the senators to have gone home until October 15 when this important piece of legislation is before us, is hardly doing their duty.

Hon. Yvon Pinard (President of the Privy Council):

Mr. Speaker, 1 am convinced that if the Senate had known we would adopt this bill today they would have stayed. On the other hand, I am sure that they will suffer less, politically, for having left last week than any party on the other side of this House.

Mr. Speaker, I assume from his answer that the government House leader will bring this matter to the attention of the senators. When he does, I would ask him to inform them that he has our complete support and also the support of the man who wished he could be a senator, the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles)!

Madam Speaker may give notice that she is so satisfied, and thereupon the House shall meet at the time stated in such notice, and shall transact its business as if it had been duly adjourned to that time; and That, in the event of Madam Speaker's being unable to act owing to illness or other cause, the Deputy Speaker, the Deputy Chairman of Committees or the Assistant Deputy Chairman of Committees shall act in her stead for all the purposes of this order.
