Richard Burpee Hanson (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

I shall not go further into the matter, but I suggest to the minister that parliament might very well be asked to deal with the question of policy rather than leave it to the discretion of the Minister of National Revenue. I do not question his good faith or his understanding of the situation, but this is an exercise of power on a matter of principle with which parliament itself should deal.
