Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Yale):

Mr. Speaker, I would not wish to say a word to

[Mr MacInnfe.J

impede greater progress in the house, but I am rather in a difficulty with regard to Wednesday next. Some of those associated with me have been endeavouring to arrange a public memorial service for the late Right Hon. Viscount Bennett, and overcoming a considerable number of difficulties we chose noon on Wednesday for that service at Chalmers church. My card has only just reached me, and it is possible that the Prime Minister's card has not yet reached him. But if he would give consideration to putting off the morning sittings from Wednesday to Thursday of next week it would be considered a very courteous thing.

Mr. STIRLIXG:

It is quite clear that the order in council empowers the Minister of Trade and Commerce to dio certain things as covered by this bill, but it does not seem, to me that it empowers the Canadian Commercial Corporation, which was set up under an act of 1946, to do certain things; that is, purchase the requirements for the Department of National Defence, when it has not the power under the act to make those purchases. Under the act of 1946 the Canadian Commercial Corporation was not empowered to buy a cedar pencil for any department of government, but this amending bill is purporting to hand to the Canadian Commercial Corporation the duty of purchasing for a specified department.
