PC

James MacKerras Macdonnell

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Macdonnell (Muskoka-Ontario):

No, I
am not an absentee member. I live there during a large part of the year.
This is a quotation from the Minister of Agriculture which is right down my alley. He says, as reported at page 1641 of Hansard:
I am inclined to agree with some of the statements that have been made from the other side of the house to the effect that something ought to be done about the convertibility of exchange-
That is all I am saying. Let us do something and not just talk about it. I continue: -something ought to be done about the convertibility of exchange between all countries who are trying to co-operate in doing the same thing in the world.

Topic:   FOREIGN EXCHANGE CONTROL ACT
Subtopic:   CONTINUANCE IN FORCE UNTIL SIXTY DAYS AFTER OPENING OF FIRST SESSION OF PARLIAMENT IN 1951
