Mr. SLAGHT:

I leave myself in the judgment of the committee whether the attacks made by the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre and the hon. member for Huron-Perth (Mr. Golding), whether that kind of interjection and endeavour to destroy the presentation of a problem, is worth-while at this hour of our country's plight. I suggest that it is not. I leave myself, in the light of the personal abuse I have received to-night, in the judgment of the members of this committee, regardless of whether they agree or disagree with the problem that I have seriously endeavoured to present. The minister, whose problem it was to deal with this matter, showed me all the courtesy of debate, and I would have hoped that the side-liners who either got up or were put up to-night to attempt to destroy me would have found it desirable to keep themselves on a similar plane of decency in public discussion.
