Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, I am sure every member of the house, regardless of party, will re-echo the words of the leader of the opposition (Mr. [DOT]Graydon) on this occasion. It was indeed kind of the Acting Prime Minister (Mr. Ralston) yesterday to let us know that the Prime Minister was to arrive last evening, so that we might be present and see him land safe and well, and apparently not too tired.
We feel, as I think all the house feels,
[DOT] regardless of our political affiliations, that the Prime Minister on his recent trip represented 'Canada with distinction to himself and honour to our country.
Mr. J. Id. BLACKMORE (Lethbridge): Mr. Speaker, members of this group are glad to welcome the Prime Minister home. We feel it is a cause of satisfaction that he was able to make the trip safely, over there and back, and we shall be glad indeed to see him ready again to take his part in the government *of the country.
