Hon. W. T. WHITE (Minister of Finance):
Before the Orders of the Day
are called, I desire to correct a statement which I made in this House on January 20 last in the debate on the Address. Upon that occasion I directed the attention of the House to an article which had appeared in the Montreal Daily Telegraph, and which had been reproduced in the Daily Chronicle of London under the caption, ' Frenzied Finance in Canada.' I said that the article in question had been written by or under the direction of my predecessor, the ex-Minister of Finance. It has been drawn to my attention that the article to which I referred appeared in the Montreal Daily Telegraph a few days before the Hon. Mr. Fielding assumed its management. I therefore take very much pleasure in correcting the statement I then made, and in saying that in attributing to the exMinister of Finance the article in question, or in stating that it was written under his direction, I was in error as to the facts.
