CON

Charles Hazlitt Cahan

Conservative (1867-1942)

The point which my hon. friend leaves out of consideration, and the sole point which I emphasize, is that this government and this parliament should take means to prevent fraud and preserve order, or inevitably private parties will undertake it on their own account.
