CCF

Major James William Coldwell

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

Mr. Coldwell:

I say to hon. members of this house-and many of them know this- that there are hon. gentlemen sitting in this house who felt, because of party loyalty, or, as was said perhaps by another hon. gentleman, because he did not wish to divide the house, that what we said about economic aid to the United Nations was substantially the view a number of hon. members held in this house. Therefore, Mr. Speaker, while I feel that the hon. gentleman was quite right in raising this matter on a question of privilege, none the less I believe what I said to have been a fact, and I want to say so in the presence of my colleagues in the house, for whom on the whole I have the most profound respect.
