Liberal

Mr. CRERAR:

Perhaps I may be given the opportunity to add a word which the Prime Minister himself could not say because he did not know anything about it. The arrangements for the complimentary dinner for the Prime Minister were taken in hand over eight months ago. The Prime Minister knew nothing whatever about it, but from the beginning it was contemplated that it would be a proper occasion on which he might make a speech to the country over the radio. These assumptions and inferences, that this is something that has been arranged to influence the present political situation, are wholly without foundation whatever.
