Mr. Ferguson:

The minister apparently misunderstood one of my questions. I asked him if a badge with the crown on it could be used without the approval of Her Majesty. His answer was no, that it could not be used without the approval of Her Majesty. It was a straight question and a straight answer. Having given the answer that the badge could not be used without Her Majesty's authority or that of the reigning sovereign of the country at the time, the minister now says that approval was not received for that badge and it was changed. One of his answers must be wrong. I will ask the question again. Was permission received to use a badge with the crown on it? Was approval received from Her Majesty?
