Mr. M. J. Coldwell (Roseiown-Biggar):

Is

it not usual when an appointment of this description is made by order in council to have the terms of reference tabled and given to parliament? Is this not a most unusual

procedure, showing entire disregard for the regular parliamentary procedure?

Mr. Coldwell:

As my hon. friend interjects, the figures are still rising according to the more recent figures that have been given to us. I therefore say that we have the right to say to this government, "What are you doing about the situation, and what did you do about it in the autumn of last year?"

Mr. M. J. Coldwell (Roseiown-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, the house has listened to some long speeches today, in fact two of them, and I do not propose to speak at any great length tonight and to take up the various points made either by the Prime Minister (Mr. Diefenbaker) or by the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Pearson). But I am going to say to the Prime Minister that I want to congratulate him first of all on his restoration to health, which I forgot to do this afternoon, and second, on the good guess he made. Of course, it was so obvious that no one could really miss it.

I must say that I was surprised at the Leader of the Opposition moving an amendment of this description containing the words which the Prime Minister pointed out a few minutes ago. I wonder whether the Leader of the Opposition and the Liberal party have forgotten last June.
