Thomas Alexander Crerar

Progressive

Mr. CRERAR:

My hon. friend from Lincoln last night said that in the statement I had made I had padded the returns; and in another part of his speech he made use of the following language: "I think hon. members would like to know what the object is in deceiving the House." I submit, Mr. Speaker, that I have a right to draw the attention of the House to these remarks, and to state that the figures I gave were supplied me by the Bureau of Statistics. I think it probable that in those figures, under the title "vegetable products" some of the articles my hon. friend mentioned were included.
