Mr. Speaker, in the absence of the hon. the Acting Minister of Justice (Mr. Meighen), I desire to bring to the notice of the right hon. the Prime Minister the reports that have appeared in the press.this morning about the strikes at Winnipeg. It is said that certain men who have been arrested are to be tried before a lay commission composed largely of officials of the Department of Immigration. I submit to the Prime Minister that such should not be the case, that these are grave charges, and that they should be tried before the best trained jurists of the land, or judges. I wish to know from the Prime Minister what method of trial is proposed.
Subtopic: TRIAL, OF CERTAIN ARRESTED PERSONS.
