I refer to page 714,
volume I of ' Hansard,' 1911-12, where the hon. gentleman will find that the member for Russell asked a question and the Prime Minister answered it as follows:
Mr. Murphy: 1. Was any promise made by the present Minister of Labour, or other Government supporters, in the province of Ontario during the recent election campaign, to the effect that if the Conservative party were returned to power all those who lost money through failure of the Farmers Bank, would be reimbursed by the Government?
Mr. Borden: 1. No such promise was made by the Minister of Labour. The Government has no information as to promises made by other Government supporters.
Will the minister explain how it comes that the statement he has made just now differs from the statement made by "the Prime Minister?
Subtopic: THE FARMERS BANK.
