CON

Karl Kenneth Homuth

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HOMUTH:

I still maintain that this motion is being made as a start. in the investigation of the Bren gun contract, and I am opposing this trip to Toronto for certain reasons. One of them is that throughout the whole thing we pointed out the inefficiency of the plant, the fact that it was not fitted to make Bren guns and that there was no assurance it was fitted to make any- kind of [DOT]ammunition. But as a result of getting this contract certain men who were promoting it and who got the contract and control of the business would have been in a position to make millions of dollars of profits, through stock manipulation alone.
