Mr. DENIS (Translation):

I understand

that the hon. Solicitor General wished to have the questions put in a legal form. Can we not express ourselves in French without having recourse to a legal form, so as to be understood by the hon. Solicitor General?

Mr. DENIS (Translation):

Mr. Chairman, may I request the government to specify in the contracts which will be awarded for the erection of public buildings, that all stone cutting, instead of being done by machines, which replace 25 men at a very heavy cost, should be done by stone cutters who are unemployed, at present. I think that the buildings themselves would be better finished because experience has taught us that the quality of stone cut by workers is much superior to that of machines. Machine work will not allow distinguishing the rock that has been damaged in the quarries by explosives and, after a number of years, because of humidity, rain and climatic changes, one may notice, that the stones are cracked at certain places, which naturally endangers the safety of the building itself. I would request the government in order to find work for those who are out of jobs to employ stone cutters and not machinery to shape or transform the stones.

Mr. DENIS (Translation):

Is it only the

number that we are passing or is it the whole section? It seems to me that we are simply passing the number. I think the sections should be read in committee in order that members may, at least, follow them. It is simply childish; we should .be more in earnest in considering this bill and should not only adopt the numbers, as we have done this afternoon and evening.
