May 17, 1916 (12th Parliament, 6th Session)


William Thomas White (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)


In the House of Commons. Why was it necessary to name Mr. Saucier? I do not know Mr. Saucier; I assume that he was a man qualified for the position. But the right hon. leader of the Opposition-I am sorry he is not in his place at the moment-was doing wrong in this matter according to the views of his supporters. Here is a case of an appointment made under authority of the Estimates, just as in the case of Mr. Sherwood who is named in this Estimate. Then I would call the attention to the Supplementary Estimates for the fiscal year ending 31st March, 1911.
