March 30, 1931

Mr. GRAY:

Is the Prime Minister aware that the Department of Agriculture, through the health of animals branch, has sent out a letter through the office of the chief inspector advising that a recommendation has been made by the minister's office that officials when on departmental business in Halifax should stay at the Lord Nelson hotel, and directing them to govern themselves accordingly? I mention this because, as I think this house will realize, there is in the city of Halifax a government-owned hotel, and while I do not urge that there should be discrimination, at least we should not point out to these officials that they should use a privately-owned hotel operating in competition with a government-owned hotel.
