Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, I can assure my hon. friend that influence or the absence of influence will not have any effect in this matter. I understand that recently some of the depositors met to consider the position in which they find themselves, and that they are coming to Ottawa to make certain representations as to their claims. As soon as those representations have been heard I shall be in a better position to tell my hon. friend their substance.
