Herbert Brown Ames

Unionist

Sir HERBERT AMES:

In twenty banks. That has been done at the discretion of the Finance Minister. The method of distribution was this: In every part of Canada we have branches of the Fund raising money. Very often a branch secured the local banker as its treasurer. We always made it a practice that whatever bank a cheque was drawn on should be the bank in which the [DOT] money was deposited in the branch of that bank here in Ottawa.

Mr. MANION:

I had the pleasure of hearing the member for St. Antoine explain this proposition to a number of us returned soldier members, and I think in five minutes he could give the House an explanation which would be exceedingly interesting.

James Alexander Calder (Minister of Agriculture; Minister of Immigration and Colonization)

Unionist

Mr. CARDER:

There is no objection to this Bill being now read a third time. I think it would be desirable to do so, because there are a good many cases that will have to be treated under this new law, and they are waiting to be dealt with just as soon as it is put through.

Bill read the third time and passed.
