Mr. CURRIE:

I do not think the hon.

gentleman is fair to the minister. He knows very well that there was no evidence to show that a minister recommended any appointment to the commission.

June 3, 1921

Mr. CURRIE:

The hon. member knows very well that the committee to which this Bill was referred did not take into consideration anything at all in connection with Griffenhagen or the firm of Young and Company. I hope, Mr. Chairman, that the hon. gentleman will confine himself to the evidence which he has been reading- evidence, by the way, with which we are all familiar, but to which the hon. gentleman has been giving his attention most of the afternoon.
