Herbert Wilfred Herridge

New Democratic Party

Mr. Herridge:

Mr. Chairman, I shall be very brief. As one of the members of the house with lingering Victorian tendencies, I was very pleased to hear the hon. member opposite support the suggestion which had been made previously in this debate by my colleague the hon. member for Timiskaming, that the younger members of the page staff should be asked to leave during this discussion. It is most unfortunate in a sense that these discussions have to take place and this evidence has to be read, and so on, but my colleagues are doing this with the intention of improving the procedures with respect to divorce in Canada. I do urge, Mr. Chairman, that you give consideration to the suggestion made by the hon. member with respect to the page boys.
