James Dew Chaplin

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CHAPLIN (Lincoln):

If I voted for
oleomargarine, I did so because I believed a I, that time it was in the interest of my people to have it brought into this country. It was war time. We had that measure on the statute book as a war measure. Why did this government, I will ask the hon. gentleman, keep it on the statute book for two years after they came into power? I voted on that proposition in the same wTay as my hon. friend's late leader, Mr. Fielding.
