Hon. H. S. BELAND (Minister of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to make a statement to the House in connection with the charges which have been levelled against the Pensions Board by the Great War Veterans' Association, and which were published in yesterday's Ottawa newspapers. These charges are now under examination by the parliamentary committee on Pensions and Reestablishment, and it is presumed that the report of the committee will deal with the subject. Therefore, out of deference to the committee I would suggest that hon. members suspend judgment until such report is laid on the table, when I shall be in a position to state what action the Government is prepared to take theron.
