Henry Herbert Stevens (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEVENS:

I find it in the amende
ment to the budget, where he says:
They imply a continuance of fiscal and other policies which have not only signally failed to afford any solution of our national problems, but have been proven to have the effect of diminishing trade. . . .
The increases in taxation proposed in the budget resolutions will fall most heavily on those least able to bear the burden thereof.
Then he winds up his amendment by saying:
For these and other reasons, this house is of opinion that the present government no longer possesses the confidence of the country.
The right hon. gentleman rises in his place and asks: Where do you find any justification for saying that we oppose these? The right hon. gentleman does not like to see these items brought out individually.
