March 6, 1950 (21st Parliament, 2nd Session)

PC

Gordon Francis Higgins

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Higgins:

Let there be no misunderstanding about this matter. I speak for myself entirely. What the other hon. members of this house do is their own affair. But as for myself, if this agreement is not honoured by the cabinet, I am resigning from this house and I am going back to Newfoundland where I shall endeavour, by all possible means, to have the province of Newfoundland secede from confederation. That is what I intend to do if this promise is not honoured. That is all I have to say.
