Hon. ROBERT FORKE (Minister of Immigration) :

That is a rather difficult question to answer. My attitude towards the Salvation Army with regard to its immigration work is the same as the attitude of the Immigration department towards all other organizations engaged in t'he same class of work.

Mr. GARLAND (Bow River):

I would

like to point out to Your Honour that although this question stands under Mr. Evans' name on the order paper, it is really the resolution which should stand under my name, Mr. Evans' question having been dropped. There is, I think, a mistake in the printing.

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

This morning I directed the attention of one of the officers of the House to what appeared to be a mistake. Mr. Evans' question was dropped altogether and should be reinstated. I understand he intends to reinstate it. The name of the hon. gentleman who has just spoken should appear against the question next on the order paper.
