Martin Burrell

Mr. BURRELL.

Before the orders of the day are called, I wish to call the attention of the Prime Minister to a discrepency between a statement made by him in answering a question, and the statement of the Secretary of State. 'On February 2, the Prime Minister, in answer to a question by the leader of the opposition stated:

The writ was issued yesterday for Comox-Atlin, and will be issued to-day for Carleton.

Then on February 8, the Secretary of State, in answer to a question by myself said that the writ issued for the vacancy in Comox-Atlin on the 22nd of January, 1909. I wish to be informed which statement is correct, that of the Prime Minister or that of the Secretary of State.
