Mr. MOTHERV ELL:
All I know is that I have it on the authority of a lady who brought two copies over, a lady of high reputation, who had no object in stringing me, or the intent to do so. She had two copies of the British hog commission report with her when she arrived last week from overseas. If the ministry had wanted us to see that report surely they could have cabled for it, and we would have had it by now. I do not think there is much in it for us, or they would have had the report here. I do not like to suggest that the section stand, though I t.hink-it should; perhaps it would seem as though we were stalling the thing. I do not suppose the government could get it here in a week now; it could not come by radio. We would get only a short synopsis that way, and that would not be much better than what we are getting now.
