CON

Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I presume they took
the figures given by the Dominion statistics office, which lately published statistics of our population. They would be justified in doing so. But the Chief Statistician will tell the minister that in arriving at those statistics he took the rate of progress in the ten years previous and projected the curve into the three years. So the minister will see of what use those figures are.
