Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister) :
Like the right hon. gentleman
opposite, I was greatly surprised to see the report published in the newspapers. I know nothing about the matter but I have asked that inquiries be made as to who is responsible for the publication of the document before it was laid before parliament. I am greatly annoyed that it should have happened. It is a reflection upon parliament, is an improper thing to have done, and whoever is responsible for the information having been given to the press is guilty of a gross error so far as the house is concerned.
