Not only did they do that but it is a fact, which I think will be proved in time, that these same gentlemen agreed that if the government should be defeated by their efforts assisted by the diabolical machinations of men who should have kissed the hand of the Prime Minister rather than have endeavoured to pierce his side, they would make him Minister of Railways. I repeat it is the duty of these hon. gentlemen to explain to this House and the country why Mr. Blair resigned from the railway commission.
At six o'clock, House took recess.
House resumed at eight o'clock.
