Labour Progressive

Mr. ROSE:

The party line is a different problem and we will discuss that later. The article says that the British are also interested. Where do we come in? Here is what War and the Working Class, a Soviet journal, has to say:
Trade with the Soviet Union can doubtlessly be profitable for England, the United States, Canada and other countries.
Yes; we can do something. I need not mention only the Soviet Union. What about China? Let us help to industrialize China. There was a labour representative from India at the International Labour Office convention at Philadelphia. He said, "Help us to industrialize ourselves; help us to gain freedom, and you will see what it will mean to you from the point of view of work for your people." Let us be realistic; let us not run away on the question of the issue of money.

Bank Act-Mr. Rose

I do not vote on the basis of catch-phrases or propaganda slogans; I vote on the basis of what is realistic. If there were an amendment that would bring about improvements, I would be in favour of it, but when you talk only of socialized banks or national banks I am not prepared to vote.
