Mr. STEIN:

I wish to join with the hon. /member (Mr. Leger) who spoke a little while ago in favour of the lighthouse keepers. I have several of these public servants in my constituency, and I understand from the minister that in order to receive a share of the proposed bonus, they must come within certain regulations. I understand that one of those regulations is that they must devote all their time to the public service.

I know for a fact that before the war, and before the cost of living had reached its present level, those men at least in that portion of the St. Lawrence opposite my county had to report for duty in the spring on the first of April, and they closed their lighthouses on the first of December. They are now bound to open their lighthouses on the first of April instead of the 12th, and have to' remain at work as late as the 23rd of December, and I understand that they are liable to be called1 up for service' at any time during the year. I do not know if* they would be eligible to share in the bonus, but at all events I would suggest that as they are so poorly paid they should be allowed to participate in it.

Mr. STEIN:

Mr. Speaker brought forward the question of economy. I submit that it is rather a question of principle for the minority of this country. We can replace dollars and cents, but when we do away with principles they are often gone forever. I submit that we should not discuss this matter from the standpoint of dollars and cents.
