Mr. LADNER:

I should like to ask the

minister whether he intends to carry on a debate along these lines. I had not intended to participate in the debate nor had other hon. members on this side. We are commending the treaty. We believe it is a good one. I was going to ask the minister whether, on reconsideration, he would not think it wiser under the circumstances to abstain in his remarks from partisanship, because otherwise there will be involved a really warm discussion in which most of us will have to participate.

Mr. LADNER:

I rose a moment ago to ask the minister a question in respect to item 316. This provides for an expenditure of $367,000 in connection with exhibitions and fairs. Has the minister any tangible evidence of the result which these exhibitions bring to the country?

Mr. L. J. LADNER (Vancouver South):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to ask the Prime Minister a question with respect to order in council P.C. 1053, which extends the scope of inquiry of the Beatty commission. Under the order in council will opportunity be given to the civil service organizations, particularly the professional institute of civil servants, to make representations before the Beatty commission in order to correct anomalies as to' classification and salaries and the alleged omissions in the present Beatty report? That is will the functions of the existing committee still continue? If the Prime Minister will look at the order in council he will find the following:

The committee, therefore, on the recommendation of the Secretary of State, advise that a supplementary commission be issued to the said commissioners extending the scope of the inquiry to include such investigation, and also the advisability of fixing a minimum salary for employees in the civil service.

Mr. LADNER:

Because that is the class

under this section. I understand-and I have this information also from parties in different parts of the country-that the soldiers' representative body, the Canadian Legion, desired to have that principle extended to a period longer than ten years, and it seems to me that once the principle is established- as it properly should be established-of granting a pension to the widows, it should not be cut off at the period of ten years. There is no good reason that I can see why, if a man lives and draws his 80 per cent pension for nine years and nine months, his widow should get a pension, while if he lives for ten years and one 'month his widow does not get a pension. I am going to suggest to the minister and to the committee that the principle should be extended for a longer period, and

Pension Act Amendment

I do that in the same spirit that has characterized this whole question and raised it above the level of party politics.
