?

Some hon. MEMBERS:

Hear, hear.
Mr. HARRIS' I do not want any applause for that, it may seem too much like a recognition of flag waving, but I wish to say that it is absolutely imperative that we stand shoulder to shoulder in defending this great country of ours from all assaults, let them be from within or from without, and to preserve it intact in the interests of the civilization of mankind
As far as the budget is concerned I shall say nothing more than to apply to the action of the government the wo*"ds quoted in this House by the Minister of Finance on a previous occasion:
They promise, prepare, propose, postpone
And end by letting things alone.

The Budget-Mr. Kellner
