Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Leader of the Opposition):

I wish to call the attention of the government, and the Minister of the Interior in particular, to a telegram-indeed more than one telegram- which I have received from Winnipeg protesting against certain concessions, or rather the promise of a concession, said to have been made in respect of certain pulpwood areas in northern Manitoba, especially to those features providing only for pulpwood manufacture on a small scale rather than paper manufacture-to both the smallness of the scale and the fact that only partial manufacture is to be made of the raw material- as inadequate compensation for the very large concessions given. I would ask the Minister if he would make any statement that he can on the subject, and also if he would lay on the table of the House the agreements or order in council, or both, whichever may exist.
