Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I have no desire to delay the passage of the bill. I believe everything that could be said against it has been said more than once. I am content therefore to accede to this order of business, if there is an understanding that we will not hurry over the bill and the regulations. Frankly I have not been able to read all the regulations. They are most voluminous, and there are at least one or two which to my mind are contentious. If there is an undertaking that it will not be forced through to-day I should be quite agreeable. What would be the alternative? What other business would we go on with if we did not take up this bill? Would we take the agriculture resolutions?
