March 26, 1968 (27th Parliament, 2nd Session)


Lawrence T. Pennell (Solicitor General of Canada)


Mr. Pennell:

If I may be permitted a word or two, Mr. Chairman, I am sure the hon. member for Broadview will be pleased to learn that yesterday I affixed my signature to a memorandum to my cabinet colleagues on the matter of vacating criminal records. I hope to join with that proposal one relating to bail bonds. If the memorandum receives approval of my colleagues I hope to translate it into a bill. If it comes to pass that I am in a position of ministerial responsibility, I would hope to introduce the bill and send it to the appropriate committee of the house for examination.
