Mr. MILLAR:

I submit that poor business foresight has been shown on the part of the government as well as the citizens of Fort William. When this legislation was put into effect it was quite evident that the sample market would never amount to anything and without being offensive I would say that very poor business foresight was shown in making this investment. The result has been that money was lost in that way al-tfiough the head office has been located in Fort William. The money has been lost while the board's head office has been right there. How is the removal of the head office of the board going to bring this back or affect the matter in any way?
