Mr. A. D. Hales (Wellington South):
very happy, Mr. Speaker, to have the opportunity to take part in this debate because I am one of those who believe in the free enterprise system of business. I am also a member of a party which I believe at all times has fought for the rights of free enterprise and for business in general. I should like to compliment my friend the hon. member for Assiniboia (Mr. Argue) on his honest endeavour in presenting his bill this afternoon. I am sorry he is not in the house this
evening. I can see only three members of the C.C.F. here at the present time. If they were really sincere in introducing or promoting a bill to amend this act I would have thought they would be here in full force this evening.
Subtopic: AMENDMENT TO PLACE CEILING ON INTEREST RATES
