DOMINION-PROVINCIAL RELATIONS BBPORTED STATEMENTS OF PROFESSOR ANGUS OF ROWELL COMMISSION WITH RESPECT TO ORIENTAL SITUATION


On the orders of the day:


IND

Alan Webster Neill

Independent

Mr. A. W. NEILL (Comox-AIberni):

I would like to ask the right hon, the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) two questions. The first is, has his attention been called to the fact that Professor Angus, British Columbia's representative on the Rowell commission, has been making partisan speeches concerning a matter on which as one of the commission he will presently have to pass judgment and which formed part of the representations made by the province to the commission, namely the oriental situation? Secondly, if investigation proves this to be correct, will he consider the advisability of removing Professor Angus from

Canada-New Zealand Air Service

the commission in order that the confidence of the people of British Columbia in the fairness of any judgment which the commission may render, may be restored?

I have received a complaint about a speech which was made by Professor Angus before the Ontario Medical Association in Toronto, which I assume is the speech to which my hon. friend has made reference.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

It is the only one to which I have had my attention drawn. Upon receipt of the complaint I immediately had it brought to the attention of Professor Angus. I presume I may say that in speaking, Professor Angus was speaking as a private individual, not as a member of the commission nor were the remarks complained of made in the course of the proceedings of the commission, nor, as I understand it, with respect to any subject which comes within the scope of the commission itself. The commission has not been empowered to deal with any question of franchise. That, I believe, is the subject to which my hon. friend refers.

Mr. NEILL:

That speech was only one of them, and this matter is sub judice, because the premier of British Columbia made representations.
