Most Recent Speeches (Page 4 of 1972)


January 18, 1958

Mr. M. J. Coldwell (Roselown-Biggar):

It

may be an odd suggestion to make, Mr. Speaker, but I believe the house would get through its business better and more quickly if we reverted to our normal hours of sitting. For example, with committees meeting at ten o'clock in the morning and the house adjourning at ten o'clock at night and sitting continuously all day, day after day, it not only wearies the house but I do not know what it is doing to the ministers. I cannot understand how they are standing up at all under the strain. I think we would probably facilitate the business of the house if we reverted to the original hours.

I know that when we agreed to sit as we are sitting now, and on Saturdays, we thought we were doing that until Christmas only, but it has continued. If the session is greatly prolonged I think it is going to wear everybody out. If there is an election afterward I do not think hon. members will be in fit shape to seek re-election, and that would be too bad for the party in power.

Mr. M. J. Coldwell (Rosetown-Biggar):

Mr. Speaker, may I ask the minister a supplementary question. The sons of freedom emissaries have to register with our embassy in Moscow, have they not? I wonder if they have done so. Canadians who go there are expected to report to our embassy at Moscow, I believe. Perhaps that is a question that could be answered at some later date when information is received, but I will put the question on the record.

Mr. M. J. Coldwell (Roseiown-Biggar):

May

I ask this question. Does the minister not think, in the interests of fair competitive conditions, that conditions of the sort suggested by my hon. friend should be laid down, because Canadian Pacific Airlines could have servicing performed in Hong Kong or some other place in which there is low paid labour, thus creating unfair competition for Canadian labour as well as Trans-Canada Air Lines?
