Mr. Richard:

Perhaps it is 80 per cent. At any rate, it has nothing to do with seat belts. Belts account for a large number of accidents.

Mr. Richard:

The fact that a man is tied down in his seat will not save him from fatal injury. I often wonder whether the hon. member has not sought, by speaking on tobacco, seat belts and so on, to find subjects popular and easy to explain. I am sure the hon. member realizes that the use of seat belts alone will not reduce the death toll on our highways.

Mr. Richard:

I am very happy to take part, Mr. Speaker, having had very little opportunity to speak. Legislation has been introduced by the hon. member for Surrey-White Rock (Mr. Mather) concerning the use of tobacco and other things-matters which in my view have to do with education and should have nothing to do with the imposing of restrictions. It is in the high schools that it would be most valuable, in my view, for our children to be given an opportunity to learn how to drive. Then, again, there is no doubt that 60 per cent of the accidents on our highways are the result of alcohol.

The Acting Speaker (Mr. Richard):

Order. It being six o'clock, it is my duty to interrupt this debate pursuant to the order made on Wednesday, June 16, 1971. I therefore leave the Chair until eight o'clock tonight. The House will then consider another government business.

At six o'clock the House took recess.

It may be my last sitting at this session. On a warm and sunny day, as we look ahead to the end of our sittings I am reminded of these lines:

The sun moves always west,

The road one treads to labour,

Will lead one home to rest,

And that will be the best.
