Mr. WOODSWORTH:

The hon. gentleman is facetious. I wonder whether he knows what it means to try to live on forty cents a day. I hope he will return to his constituents and endeavour to tell them he expects them to live on forty cents a day when even members of parliament get considerably more than that, when high officials in this country get a great deal more, when great industrial magnates receive thousands of dollars a day.
