Progressive Conservative

Mr. Macdonnell (Greenwood):

It must be clear that this principle is not being approved. Perhaps we should pass it on division.

It was because members of the union felt that to be the case that they wanted that corrected; and that is what I have done. And now, in the interest of peace, order and good government, as my genial friend has said, since he knows as much about printing as I do, I suggest that he and I go over to the printing bureau tonight; we can sit down at adjoining linotype machines and I will set his speech and he can set mine.
