Mr. Berger:

Mr. Chairman, let me once again express my gratitude to Your Honour for giving me your counsel regarding the rules of debate in committee. Believe me, Mr. JANUARY 29, 1963 3241
National Economic Development Board
Chairman, it was not my intention in any way to be unfair either to Your Honour or to other hon. members of the committee. Let me summarize by saying it is simply not good enough for the government to express good intentions. Good intentions will not be enough if this legislation is to be successful in promoting labour management co-operation in all parts of the country. It will take a great deal more than good intentions. It will take courage, and I urge the Minister of Finance, whose responsibility it will be to make sure that this legislation achieves its objective, to carry it out in its spirit as well as in its letter.

Topic:   NATIONAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BOARD
Subtopic:   PROVISION FOR DEFINITION OF DUTIES, APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS, ETC.
