Hon. GEORGE GRAHAM:

In the remarks which I made during the discussion which took place in the House, I did not use the term "conscription of wealth." The resolution which I introduced was in these words:
That in the opinion of this House it is desirable that steps should be taken forthwith by the Government to provide that accumulated wealth should contribute immediately and effectively to the cost of the war.
The observations that I made were, I think, perfectly in harmony with the wording of this resolution and with the remarks just made by the Minister of Finance.

Topic:   ''CONSCRIPTION OF WEALTH." STATEMENT BY THE FINANCE MINISTER.
