SC

Ernest George Hansell

Social Credit

Mr. Hansell:

My own impression is that that thing escaped the chairman's mind altogether. I am not blaming the chairman. I would do the same thing. The bill had been killed, and what did it matter whether or not he used the phrase, "Shall I report the bill?" It is a matter of form. I am saying that it did not occur to him. I have no doubt that he was urged by someone else to call the committee back not in order that he might repeat the phrase but in order that the decision might be reversed.
