Mr. MACKENZIE (Vancouver Centre):
I am not critical of that; I thought it was a constructive suggestion, but I am pointing out the change in conditions in the dominion and the change in the thinking of our people. At the same time, the responsibility is mine and we cannot afford to relax our efforts. I do not think we should expand any more. As I pointed out last night, as regards equipment, this year's estimates provide for practically all that we shall require, and the estimates will go down from now on for A.R.P. work. There is no intention of expanding, but, I repeat, it is my responsibility to support the volunteers, especially on the two coasts, in Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, British Columbia and parts of Ontario, in the splendid voluntary efforts they are making on behalf of the nation. We cannot afford to be extravagant, but on the other hand we cannot afford to be complacent.
