May 30, 1956 (22nd Parliament, 3rd Session)

PC

George Alexander Drew (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Drew:

I should say further consideration of that section. That was indeed an affront to this house. There had been no consideration and therefore there could be no further consideration. We were allowed no consideration of any kind on section 1 where the opportunity presents itself to elicit information by direct questions. We were offered no opportunity to consider section 2. We were offered no opportunity to consider section 3. We were then given the opportunity to consider section 4 which, in a large

measure, had become a futility because we had already passed over the definition and operative sections of the act.
Now, the Prime Minister suggests that we agree to sit tonight and Saturday, provided we will agree to their terms.
