I understand that the hon. member for Labelle (Mr. Bourassa) agreed to this proposal. I do not think my hon. friend from Quebec South (Mr. Power) was in his place the other day when the hon. member for Labelle was here. Then it was only a question of setting up the committee, and I suggested to my right hon. friend the leader of the opposition that perhaps it would be advisable, in view of the duties we both have to perform, that we leave -this work to others and do not have our names placed on the committee, so I think there is no question of objection. If my hon. friend thinks this will be objected to we will try to accommodate the hon. gentleman who moved the first resolution in some way. However, if it is thought desirable the motion may stand.
