Mr. Maclnnis:

The speaker on that occasion was Captain Elmore Philpott at a meeting in Edmonton. I am just suggesting to this house that there is room for an increase in family allowances, and if some of the increase were to go to people who already have incomes you can take that away as it is taken away now. But we should make our family allowances such that every family in this country can be assured of a family income that will give it at least good physical health and good emotional health, and also allow the parents,

in their struggle for existence, to take advantage of the educational opportunities that this country provides.
