Mr. Howe (Port Arthur):

It is the business of a certain type of mind; but I might point out there is no law of the land that interferes with Mr. Barrington being a director of any corporation he likes. However I may say that I am going to discuss it with him, and what his future action will be will depend on the nature of our discussion. However my hon. friend can ask questions and throw in insinuations. If he can show that anyone has violated the law of the land in connection with Mr. Barrington's appointment let him go to it.

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

The hon. member is using his position in parliament to obtain information for a small broker in the city of Winnipeg, and I object to giving that information, because I do not think that to do so would help the sale of Canadian wheat.
