Mr. G. S. WHITE (Hastings-Peterborough):
Mr. Speaker, as a new member in the House of Commons I realize fully my position in rising to take part in the debate. I agree most heartily with the observations just made by the hon. member for Souris (Mr. Ross). It seems strange that as soon as he mentioned the words "political expediency," there was immediate applause from the government benches.
It is not necessary to dwell on the seriousness of the hour, and I say to private members on the government benches that now is the time for them to show their loyalty.
