Hon. FRANK OLIVER (Edmonton):
Have the Government knowledge of the fact that Col. W. H. Merritt, who purports to be secretary of the Canadian Aviation Fund, is collecting or attempting to collect money for the purchase of aeroplanes. The object of the Canadian Aviation Fund is to give help to the firing line by means of trained aviators and aeroplanes. The cost of a machine is $7,600. If the Government have knowledge of Col. W. H. Merritt's operations, have those operations their approval?
Subtopic: CANADIAN AVIATION FUND.
