As a matter of fact there is great controversy in Great Britain in regard to this matter, and the point of view expressed by the minister in this house in April is very much the point of view held, by a large number of people in Great Britain. I have no doubt that even if people do succeed in setting up privately owned airways in this country and elsewhere it will be only a short time before governments will be compelled to take them over and operate them as great public transportation systems, so that in order to avoid the difficulties which otherwise are bound to arise in the future let us establish now our own publicly owned and publicly operated airways system.
I just want to repeat in conclusion that I wish there were a labour code in this bill.
