Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Munitions and Supply)

Liberal

Mr. HOWE:

If my hon. friend considers this matter fairly I think he will see that the fault is entirely with himself in having addressed his letter to the wrong person. He did not say to whom he addressed it, but obviously the right person is the minister in charge of the department. I get dozens of such letters every day and I can either give the answer, if it is in my department, or send the letter to my colleague in the proper department, who answers directly and advises me. I dare say my hon. friend wrote to an official thinking to save my time.
