Hon. W. S. FIELDING (Minister of Finance) :

The motion having been brought forward by a private member and not by the ministry, any member of the government is free to vote as he pleases on the subject. For myself I intend to vote for the motion of the hon. gentleman (Mr. Good). I may say that when this matter was debated last session the Prime Minister expressed his views upon it, giving his assurance of support of the motion.

Topic:   PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION
Subtopic:   MOTION BY MR. GOOD FOR ALTERNATIVE VOTE IN SINGLE-MEMBER CONSTITUENCIES
