Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BARKER.

That very thought did occur to me. I did not want to do the hon. gentleman any injustice, and I looked away back to 1S96 to see whether this thing lay at the door of the hon. gentleman alone. 1 thought that perhaps the Hon. Mr. Haggart might have been doing this sort of thing also, and I looked back and will tell the hon. gentleman the result of my researches. On the 1st July, 1896, he took over the railway from Mr. Haggart, and the report of that year was made up, not by Mr. Haggart but by his successor the present hon. Minister of Railways.
