Donald Sutherland

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SUTHERLAND:

If the Prime Minister is determined to put his estimates through at this hour in the morning, I presume he is quite at liberty to do so, but I hope we shall never hear him again speak about putting estimates through after eleven o'clock at night. In view of what happened last session when we sat until eight o'clock in the morning, I suppose he has no regard for the boast he was making as to what he was going to do as Prime Minister in future. I think it is almost unheard of for estimates of this kind to be passed at this hour of the morning after three-quarters of the members have gone home not expecting they were going to be introduced.

Donald Sutherland

Mr. SUTHERLAND:

It is not a matter

of voting items for the Governor General or anything of that kind. I object to going on with items at this hour in the morning when members are not present.

Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I might point out to the Minister of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment that the salaries are a little more than $7,000 over what they were at the highest under the late government, so that there is more reason for objection.
