Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

That is only a suggestion. With reference to the question I put this morning about 6.30 to the Minister of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment, as to whether the government had not taken a different stand in the House of Commons to what it took in the other House regarding the Pensions bill, I would ask the minister to read as they appear recorded the utterances in the other House by the member of the Senate who represents the government and leads its forces in that chamber. This substantiates to the full what I stated yesterday, and even more. It seems strange that the government should take one stand in this House and a totally different stand in the Senate.

Topic:   PENSIONS BILL IN THE SENATE
