April 28, 1949 (20th Parliament, 5th Session)

PC

Donald Methuen Fleming

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Fleming:

It would be bad enough to be asked to entrust the expenditure of the money of the people of Canada to this government after parliament had had a proper opportunity to review the proposed expenditures in detail, but I say that for this government to come along with the record that it has and ask parliament to vote another $540 million to them sight unseen without parliament having the slightest opportunity of looking into these items of expenditure, is the last and crowning insult to parliament. The house ought to rise in indignation and decline to be a party to such a degradation of the parliament of the people of Canada.
