John Warwick King

Progressive

Hon. Mr. KING (Kootenay):

Owing to

representations from the Winnipeg Board of Trade and other bodies, the government decided not to permit a news stand in front of the Winnipeg post office.

If a number of applications were received the privilege would go to the highest bidder. If a returned soldier bid were equal to highest tender it would be policy to give the returned soldier the preference.
