Mr. STIRLING:

I understood the leader of the opposition to indicate this morning that he would like the Prime Minister to state his views with regard to the suggestion made that a joint committee composed of members of the Commons and members of the Senate and representatives of the provinces be set up to consider the reform of the Senate.

I further understood my leader to indicate that unless there wras a probability that such a committee would be set up to examine the question of the reform of the Senate, this party would reconsider the decision which he expressed in favour of the bill.

Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Yale):

The statement to which we have just listened from the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Claxton) was in the nature of a rapid synopsis of past, present and the future. I want to add a few words with regard to one portion of this matter, namely, the Royal Canadian Navy. Before I do so I should like to ascertain from the minister what his ideas are with regard to the discussion which should

Supply-National Defence

take place. The trend of his remarks this year all led one to suppose that he desires to look upon the defence forces as one service.
