March 12, 1948 (20th Parliament, 4th Session)

PC

John Bracken (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. BRACKEN:

Our interpretation of the motion is that the resolution will be referred to a committee, there to be considered and sent back either with or without some recommendations, and that when it comes back to the house we will be free to deal with it as we choose. If that is the purpose of this motion, if that is what is to be accomplished, we will offer no objection at this time. But we want to reserve our right to take any attitude that seems necessary when it comes from the committee back to the house for further consideration.

Topic:   TARIFFS AND TRADE
Subtopic:   REFERENCE OF SUBJECT MATTER OF GENEVA TRADE AGREEMENT TO BANKING AND COMMERCE COMMITTEE
