January 31, 1958 (23rd Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

Gordon Minto Churchill (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Churchill:

The rights of parliament are being recognized as they have always been by this party. I have indicated that an inquiry into this question will be conducted and that Hon. John Bracken has consented to conduct that inquiry. That is information which I am sure this house has been eagerly awaiting, and it will satisfy certainly those in western Canada who want this question investigated. The normal procedures of parliamentary practice have been followed and will be followed in the future.
