Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. LENNOX.

It is just as I anticipated. For two and a half years we have been following this government from season to season; we have been urging them in the spring and in the summer to get to work with the investigation, and in the autumn when these engineers organize and get ready to work they cannot work because it is impossible to proceed during the winter. The statement of the Prime Minister that this investigation is proceeding is absolutely misleading, because while these gentlemen have been brought together into being as a committee of investigation under the Act, not one step wall be taken by them to proceed with the investigation until next spring.
