June 21, 1965

Hon. J. Watson MacNaught (Solicitor General) moved:

That a joint committee of the Senate and House of Commons be appointed to enquire into and report upon the problems of consumer credit, more particularly but not so as to restrict the generality of the foregoing to enquire into and report upon the operation of Canadian legislation in relation thereto;

That twenty-four members of the House of Commons to be designated by the House at a later date, be members of the joint committee, and that standing order 67(1) of the House of Commons be suspended in relation thereto;

That the said committee have power to call for persons, papers and records and examine witnesses; to sit while the House is sitting, and to report from time to time and to print such papers and evidence from day to day as may be deemed advisable, and that Standing Order 66 be suspended in relation thereto; and to engage the services of counsel, accountants and such other clerical and technical personnel as may be deemed necessary, that the Minutes of Proceedings of and evidence given before the joint committee at the past session be referred to the said committee and be made part of the records thereof; and that a message be sent to the Senate requesting that House to unite with this House for the above purpose and to select, if the Senate deems it advisable, some of its members to act on the proposed joint committee.

He said: Mr. Speaker, this resolution is largely self-explanatory. It is merely to reconstitute a committee that was set up at the previous session of this Parliament. The Committee has done a considerable volume of work but has not yet completed its job. It is proposed that the committee be set up and that the evidence taken during the previous session be referred to it.
