Mr. G. G. COOTE (Macleod):

I understand that a cable advice was received in Ottawa to-day to the effect that Sir Josiah Stamp will sail next week from London and that upon arrival in Canada he will act as chairman of the Royal Grain Commission. Will the Prime Minister confirm this report arid indicate to the house the scope of the proposed commission?

NATIONAL DEFENCE

REPORTED STATEMENT OF MAJOR GENERAL MCNAUGHTON, CHIEF OF STAFF


On the orders of the day. Mr. ROSS W. GRAY (West Lambton): I wish to call the attention of the Minister of National Defence to an article which appears in this morning's Ottawa Citizen concerning a military banquet which was held last evening. Major General McNaughton, chief of staff, is reported to have stated that it is the intention of the government to make serious cuts in the militia system and that information respecting the matter is to be tabled in the house at an early date. I wish to ask the Minister of National Defence if that statement was authorized and if not whether this official will be reprimanded. If it was authorized may we take it that henceforth government policies will be announced at banquets of this nature rather than from the floor of the house?

I have received a letter from the province of Manitoba inquiring whether or not the vetcraft work shop which was destroyed in June, 1930, will be reconstructed. A question somewhat similar to this was asked yesterday, but I would like to know whether there is any further information in regard to the matter.
