Donald Matheson Sutherland (Minister of National Defence)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. D. M. SUTHERLAND (Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the right hon. leader of the opposition (Mr. Mackenzie King) asked me a question regarding the camps. I have been endeavouring to obtain some information on this subject but have not succeeded as yet. By to-morrow I shall be able to give a definite answer.
Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING
(Leader of the Opposition): The minister
states that he has not been able to obtain the necessary information but will give an answer to-morrow. I ask the minister if the matter of holding political meetings in construction camps under the control of the Department of National Defence is not a matter of policy which the minister himself must determine rather than anyone else? Could he not say now that within certain limits it will be permissible to hold meetings in the camps in an orderly and proper manner?
