Mr. GRAHAM:

It has an immigration

ogganization in London which has control of European immigration so far as Canadian Nationjal propaganda is concerned. Each department, I can assure the committee, is doing its best to cut out overlapping and reduce expenses.

Mr. GOOD:

In view of the lateness of the hour, I would suggest that if this particular item were allowed to pass we might be given the assurance that we should be able to discuss the general policy of the department or some other item.

Robert James Manion

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MANION:

I am agreeable to the item for $1,350,000 being adopted, but I do not think that the empire settlement scheme has been discussed. If we were sure of being able to discuss these questions we might let the item pass and go home.
