Henry Lumley Drayton

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

We have had the government asking for consent before, and I remember the position in whieh the hon. member for Burrard (Mr. Clark) found himself. A similar pledge was given in that case but it could not be carried out. Someone objected. It is quite easy for someone to object to this understanding being carried out. It could easily be blocked. It has been done before.

George Perry Graham (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Mr. GRAHAM:

Further than that I might say that there will be Supplementary Estimates on which it would be fully open for my hon. friend to discuss anything in connection with this item. There can be no question about that.

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

Perhaps the best thing I can do is to rely on my hon. friend the Minister of Railways and Canals. The understanding is that we let this item go through with the full right to reserve discussion.
