Mr. ROCH LANCTOT:

As a representative of the farming community, I also, Mr. Chairman, wish to make a few remarks on the salaries of judges and on retirement allowances paid to them by the Government. It appears we have this year a surplus of 55 millions, and to hear the hon. members who have spoken during the last few days, it would seem that an effort is being made to reduce that surplus, first of all by paying the members themselves an extra indemnity of $1,000 or $1,500 each for the present session.
I will now take all of these government pensioners, and I may say that -the farming class is strongly opposed to all the high salaries we are paying.
