Mr. T. W. CALDWELL (Victoria and Carleton) :

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of .Agriculture if he proposes to bring down his resolution on which to base, a bill to regulate the sale of fertilizers. Due to the fact that the session is drawing to a close, and that consequently a good deal of the legislative cargo may be jettisoned, I am anxious to hear what my hon. friend (Mr. Motherwell) proposes to do in the matter.

Hon. H. S. BELAND (Minister of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to make a statement to the House in connection with the charges which have been levelled against the Pensions Board by the Great War Veterans' Association, and which were published in yesterday's Ottawa newspapers. These charges are now under examination by the parliamentary committee on Pensions and Reestablishment, and it is presumed that the report of the committee will deal with the subject. Therefore, out of deference to the committee I would suggest that hon. members suspend judgment until such report is laid on the table, when I shall be in a position to state what action the Government is prepared to take theron.

Mr. BELAND:

The charges which have been published in the newspapers and to which reference was made in the House yesterday by the hon. member for Kootenay (Mr. Humphrey). My right hon. friend (Mr. Meighen) will remember that I made a statement in the House yesterday in the matter. I may apprise the House further that I received this morning a communication from the chairman of the Board referring to those charges in specific terms. I thought I had among my papers the charges in their exact wording, but I do not seem to have them now. At any rate, they have been published in the newspapers; the charge is, in a word, that the board conspired to deprive ex-service men of rights to Which they were by statute entitled.
