Hon. DOUGLAS ABBOTT (Minister of Finance):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. My attention has just been called to the issue of the Brantford Daily Expositor, of Wednesday, April 30, 1947, which contains a statement as to the budget proposals, and on the front page is a reproduction of the photograph of a very handsome gentleman with a black moustache. Printed beneath the picture there appear the words "The Hon. Douglas Abbott, Dominion Finance Minister". Unfortunately the photograph is that of the Hon. Maurice Duplessis, premier of Quebec, and in view of the wide circulation which I know this publication enjoys in western Ontario, I felt, in justice both to Mr. Duplessis and to myself, that I should make this explanation.
