July 21, 1931 (17th Parliament, 2nd Session)

CON

Franklin White Turnbull

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. TURNBULL:

The report of the committee appears in the votes and proceedings. Briefly, the committee did not agree that there was any money spent in Canada on war, that the expenditures of the Department of National Defence were not war expenditures. Secondly, the committee was of the opinion that professorships and scholarships were not practicable to establish, first by reason of the expense entailed, and second by reason of difficulties of legislative jurisdiction as between the provinces and the Dominion. The third recommendation of the committee is that books on inter-imperial and international relations should be added from time to time to the library in the Department of External Affairs, and the fourth recommendation commends the League of Nations Society in Canada to members of parliament and to the people of Canada generally, and suggests continued support thereof.
