Mr. J. K. BLAIR (North Wellington):
I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett), as to the truth of a report appearing in yesterday's Toronto Mail and Empire. This report states that Hon. Howard Ferguson has been elected chairman of the imperial economic conference, which conference is to carry on the work of economic intelligence hitherto conducted by the empire marketing board, and it is suggested that the empire marketing board may be abolished. I think perhaps that board is under the control of the government of Great Britain, but I should like to get some information from the Prime Minister in regard to this report.
