Mr. George A. Drew (Leader of ihe Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I feel sure that all members will welcome the presentation of this plan, and will hope that some results may ultimately flow from it. One can only express regret that it should be presented at this time when there is no opportunity

to discuss it during the life of the present government. I feel sure, however, that members will welcome the opportunity to examine the plans and to prepare themselves to discuss them when a new government is formed.
