Hon. J. W. Pickersgill (Minister of Transport):
Perhaps, Mr. Speaker, I would be permitted to say that, if rumours are true, this may be the last day's attendance by the hon. gentleman in this chamber and he, apart from some of his partisan activities, is a very popular member of the house. I will not go so far as to say we wish him well in any new endeavours, but I know that from a personal standpoint, so far as his health, wealth and happiness are concerned, we would all wish him very well.
