Mr. BOTHWELL:

I am only judging from the letter written by the firm of Schull & Marquis. It is in the nature of a personal letter making a protest on their own behalf as well as on behalf of the others who joined in. snaking up the memorandum. I wanted to put that on record because of this fact. Since

Radio Broadcasting Act
coming to Ottawa to attend this session one hears complaints on every hand of this radio commission and the way they have manipulated things so that radio users are not able to get the benefit of the radio they bought and paid for, and when I see that the chairman of the radio commission states, "There is difficulty here but we have done wonderful things for the west," I want to show what the situation in the west is.
I believe that before any further money is voted for this commission before we give them any greater power than they now have and before they are allowed to employ their own officers, clerks and employees without the intervention of the Civil Service Commission we should have some evidence that the radio commission know what they are doing.
