William Thomas White (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir THOMAS WHITE:

I am not sure whether there was a letter in which it was stated that the price had been fixed at $2.50 at the mill. If there is such a letter I shall bring that down too. It was verbally communicated to me by the President of the Pulp and Paper Association that the price of $2.50 had been fixed. That price having been fixed, it was not necessary to gazette the Order in Council.
