Mr. G. A. Cruickshank (Fraser Valley):

On
a question of privilege, Mr. Speaker, I should -ike to make a suggestion to you, and through you to the house. It is one that has been made by the hon. member for Macleod (Mr. Hansell) on many occasions. We have had the great privilege of having as our guest today the distinguished Prime Minister of India. I happen to be fortunate in the location of my seat in the house, but very few of the members, and no one in the galleries, could hear him. I think in this day and age of scientific development there is no reason why we should not have a public address system. I insist, through you, Mr. Speaker, to the Prime Minister (Mr. St. Laurent) that other arrangements be made.
