Hugh Guthrie (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. HUGH GUTHRIE (Leader of the Opposition):

The only remark I have to

offer in regard to this motion is that it is rather late in the session to bring down the reports of the Auditor General and refer them to the select standing committee on public accounts. l'here will be no opportunity to do anything this year, and I think the government should have referred these accounts to this committee a month or two months ago.
