April 13, 1962 (24th Parliament, 5th Session)

It is obvious that what the minister has said is right. This is something which was introduced into this house by the Prime Minister, but surely it was passed by this parliament and endorsed by all the members of the other parties. When such a document is being published at public expense I think it would be better understood if it were not partisan.
This is by no means the first bill of rights which has been drawn up. There is, for example, the constitution of the United States of America. The reason this receives the respect of all people is that it is non-political; no political party has made it a special area of concern.
