William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)


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

I should like to ask the Prime Minister just how the house may get information with respect to the expenses of the radio broadcasting commission. The hon. member for Skeena (Mr. Hanson) asked a question about the expenses of the

Radio Commission Expenses
commission on Monday, April 9, and the Prime Minister replied that as the radio committee was sitting, it afforded every possible opportunity to secure the information. I am advised that the member has tried through the agency of the committee to get the information, and has been told that he can not obtain it from that source. Surely the house is entitled to some statement of the expenses of the commission under main headings. I do not mean anything in the nature of an inquisition, as the Prime Minister suggested might be possible, but rather a statement of expenses under general headings. I think we ought to be able to obtain that in short order.
