April 2, 1947 (20th Parliament, 3rd Session)

PC

Edmund Davie Fulton

Progressive Conservative

Mr. FULTON:

I would mention the categories of goods which were removed from controls yesterday. There is, of course, a good deal of force to the argument which has been put forward by members on this side of the house, that it is difficult to deal with this bill because there are fifty-seven measures
involved. We would like to have that changed. Then in committee we may make more suggestions with regard to these fifty-seven measures. It seems to me immaterial, in a sense, whether we have to sit here until next

December before we finish the bill if, when we get through with it, even in only one respect it is a better bill than it was when it first came before the house. That will be the object of the opposition.
