February 12, 1934 (17th Parliament, 5th Session)

CON

Murray MacLaren (Minister of Pensions and National Health)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MacLAREN:

Not at all. This resolution proposes that a committee deal with the matter of policy. That was one reason why I objected to it; I do not think a committee should form a definite health policy for the government. Let me make it clear that I agree as to cooperation; that is our duty. I also agree that the work should be increased and that the work carried on throughout the country, whether by the provinces or by the federal government, should receive our approval. But I am opposing this resolution which seeks to establish a definite health policy.

Topic:   FEDERAL HEALTH POLICY
Subtopic:   COOPERATION WITH PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENTS- PROPOSED REFERENCE TO INDUSTRIAL AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS COMMITTEE.
