Mr. F. G. SANDERSON (South Perth):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Marine (Mr. Duranleau) based upon a report of a meeting held in the city of Toronto on Tuesday, April 25. I do not suppose Your Honour will permit me to read this report, but I shall refer to its contents. Mr. Hector Charlesworth, the chairman of the radio commission is reported to have said at this meeting that the commission would not deviate from the policy which it had formulated and that anyone was a liar or a fool who said that radio in Canada was not in a better position to-day than it was a year ago. He then got very dramatic and said, "My head is bloody but unbowed." I ask the minister if he has read this report; if he has not will he read it and after he has read it will he endeavour to discipline the chairman of the radio commission.
