At the same' time, I sympMhizo with the View expressed by the prime minister.thai' It is not wise lo niako this Inurcaso at the present time.

Moreover, there has prob- ably nol been a .time in our history since confederation when pdrliaihent, as mi Institution, was under so much criticism as it Is at present. An In- crease in Indemnity now would prob- ably, unfairly unreasonably, throw members to criticism uir.t they were more concerned with tbslr own emolument tlian tho country's and would tend to lower parlia- mcnt still further in tbb esteem.of tho. people.
