I am sorry to have to interrupt the hon. member, but at the present time the house is not in committee. I would prefer that he confine his remarks to a discussion of the principle of the bill, and defer the discussion of particular sections until the house is in committee of the whole on the second reading. It is the principle of the bill which should now be considered.
Subtopic: CREATION OP DEFENCE PURCHASING BOARD TO ENTER INTO CONTRACTS FOR MUNITIONS, EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES
