I should like to table copy of order in council passed to-day appointing Mr. A. Davidson Dunton of Montreal, a governor of the Canadian Boardcasting Corporation and chairman of the board. Mr. Dunton will be the first full-time chairman of the board appointed in pursuance to the legislation of 1944. He will take up his duties on November 15. The appointment is for a period of three years.
