J.-H.-Théogène Ricard

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Ricard:

Mr. Chairman, I do not wish to take up the time of the committee for very long by speaking about the legislation which is now before us, but I do wish to go on record and thank the Minister of Veterans Affairs for the manner in which questions relating to veterans have been dealt with during the present session. The many letters which I have received from veterans in my constituency justify my standing up and saying a grateful thank-you for what the Minister of Veterans Affairs has done, and also to the government for the manner in which these questions have been dealt with. This is but one of the many items which the Conservative party desires to put forward in the present session, and again I offer my very best thanks to the government and to the Minister of Veterans Affairs.
