Mr. E. J. YOUNG (Weyburn):

Mr. Speaker, I cannot hope to entertain the house with so witty or amusing a speech as that 22110-105
of the hon. member for Long Lake (Mr. Cowan), but I will endeavour in as simple language as possible to set forth things as they appear to me.
In considering the budget and its several amendments it is well to bear in mind that we are to-day considering a double budget. When the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) introduced his budget last September he told us that if we did not put it through and put it through quickly he would not go to the Imperial conference. Is it not a pity that we did not call his bluff and keep him at home?

Topic:   THE BUDGET
Subtopic:   CONTINUATION OF THE DEBATE ON THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL STATEMENT OF THE MINISTER OF FINANCE
