Mr. LEMIEUX:

I received the Bill last night from my hon. friend the Postmaster General. While I am in favour of the principle of the parcel post system, the Bill is incomplete. It does not state what rates will be established, and the Postmaster General takes all the power to himself and ignores the authority of Parliament. The Bill is therefore controversial.

Topic:   BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE.
