Mr. Carroll:

Mr. Chairman, you have made a decision in this matter and I think it is the due of members of this house that you should enforce it. You have made the decision, and I do not think you should call on the Minister of National Defence at the present time to answer any questions.

Mr. W. F. Carroll (Inverness-Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, as a humble member from Nova Scotia I want to congratulate the Prime Minister (Mr. St. Laurent) and the government on what they are doing toward putting a statue on parliament hill in commemoration of one of the greatest men this country has ever had, and one of our greatest prime ministers. I had the pleasure and, I should say, the honour of reading law in the office of Sir Robert Borden in Halifax. I did not see too much of him at the time but I think he was the kindliest man I ever met in my life.

Some time ago I said a word about Sir Robert Borden in connection with a matter which the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Drew) brought before the house today, namely the signing of the treaty of Versailles. The matter of placing monuments on parliament hill in commemoration of our great men is something worthy of our Canadian people. It is something to indicate that after all we have here a united nation irrespective of politics or anything else.

The story of Sir Robert Borden is one well worth reading. I often think that the government of this country, whether it be

Committee on Standing Orders Conservative or Liberal-and I presume that is the only kind we shall ever have-should get somebody to write, in accurate and historic form, the history of the great men who have ruled over the destinies of this country.
