The Solicitor General is very smooth. I assume he does not altogether neglect his English classics and consume all his midnight oil in thinking out how he is going to trap the other fellow's client by wily and subtle technicalities. I would advise him to read " Ten Thousand a Year," where he will find a description of the legal firm of Quirk, Gammon & Snap, and then let him tell me what he thinks of the application of Oily Gammon to the present situation.
I am not going to say that the absolutely incorrect figures given by the Solicitor General were quoted by him with a deliberate intention of deceiving the House. I do not say that, because the rules of debate do not permit me to say it. But the result upon
Subtopic: PROPOSED COMMITTEE OF INVESTIGATION.
