James Layton Ralston (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. RALSTON:

I want to make it quite clear that the Minister of National Defence was in Los Angeles, but the matter was referred to him and the Minister of National Defence takes full responsibility. He was not away until October 9; by that date the expedition had been not only authorized but had been accepted, and a wire came that day as to the time when the expedition was desired.
