John Ritchie MacNicol

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. J. R. MacNICOL (Toronto Northwest) :

Mr. Speaker, before the orders of the day are called I should like to refer to some headings appearing in last night's issue of the Toronto Daily Star in reference to remarks I made yesterday. The heading of the article reads: "Unemployment ended in Russia

MacNicol states." That heading is altogether in error; I made no such statement. Then it continues, " Toronto Conservative says Soviet leads world in national planning."

That is an error; I made no such statement. Then, " Mr. MacNicol said Russia is the only country in the world which has been able to abolish unemployment." I made no such statement.

Each and every one of those statements appearing in last night's Toronto Daily Star is absolutely and totally in error.

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker,

yesterday I drew the attention of your honour and that of the Prime Minister to what I regarded as an evasion of the privileges of this house in the publication in the press of almost the entire text of the bill on social and unemployment insurance before hon. members had been able to receive copies of the bill. Up to the present time the members of the house have not received copies.
