Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)
I heartily agree with him that in the original instance these arrangements involving substantial changes in regulations and setting out government policy should be made in the House of Commons. We are at one in that thought. Not long ago I heard one minister in the cabinet make a statement which I thought was quite in order, and that was that while he did not want the House of Commons to become simply a bulletin board, in respect of everything to be announced, at the same time there is a considerable distinction between major changes in regulations and major changes in government policy. I am glad the government is accepting the responsibility on this occasion.
