Mr. ROGERS:

I believe that anyone who has followed the actual results under these grants in aid, which usually have been given under pressure of immediate circumstances without any clear vision of what they may involve in time to come, will agree that that policy is not one which ought to be continued or extended at the present time. Fortunately we have now reached a position where we shall have a review, and I hope a thorough review, of these interrelations between dominion and province under these indirect arrangements through which the dominion has given financial assistance to the provinces to enable provinces to do what they are obliged to do under the constitution but which, in many instances, they are unwilling to concede to any other legislative authority.
