Mr. McDONALD (Timiskaming):

Will the Acting Prime Minister (Mr. Graham) tell me if we can obtain definite information as to

how the Minister of Labour comes to be in Nova Scotia, whether it is at the behest of this government or of his own sweet will? I think my question is pretty plain and does not require explanation.

Mr. McDONALD (Timiskaming):

Is there not the same responsibility towards the depositors in the Fanners' Bank as there is towards the depositors in the Home Bank? Evidently it was through some mistake on the part of the Finance department, coupled with remissness of the directors of the bank, that this failure took place. The conditions were somewhat similar in the failure of the Farmers' Bank. I believe the Liberals at that time made a strenuous effort to get the government of the day to pass a resolution somewhat similar to that now before the House.
