Hon. W. A. GORDON (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, on a question of privilege, the Toronto Globe of the 23rd instant carries a report of discussions in the provincial legislature of Ontario on the 22nd instant.

Supply-Railways-Freight Rates

The article to which I want to draw attention appears under the caption:

No Ottawa help for relief works-Ontario has not received "one red cent" from federal government, Croll tells legislature.

The article commences with a quotation from Mr. Croll's speech as follows:

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Bennett's relief policy is not a five cent piece-it's not a darn cent.

Now let us examine the facts.
