Mr. JAMES CLANCY (Both well).

Of course, we can discuss the Bill to better advantage at a future stage. But, in the meantime, I can only say that, if I understood aright what the hon. Minister of Finance has said, this Bill involves a very-startling proposition. The very' purpose of the Audit Act is to afford a check on the government of the day. The hon. Minister of Finance now proposes to limit the responsibility of the Auditor General, who is the officer of parliament, and take the

responsibility upon the government which the Auditor General is to eheclc.

Topic:   CONSOLIDATED REVENUE AND AUDIT ACT AMENDMENT.
