Auguste Théophile Léger
I can assure my hon. friend from York-Sunbury (Mr. Hanson) that the railway in Kent was looked after by those more closely concerned in the interests of the county long before he was politically born. If we have not control of the branch lines down there it is not the fault of the Conservative government; they made an offer to the provincial authorities, which offer was declined. I for one have done all I could with reference to the matter, without bringing it before the House as a complaint against any government, and to-day it is being looked after by this government in a way which I think will be for the advantage of my county.
I can assure my hon. friend that this business is in good hands and that we can get along fairly well without his interference.
