The MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE (Hon. Sydney Fisher).

Mr. Speaker, I desire to rise to a question of privilege. I notice in the Ottawa ' Citizen's ' report of what occurred in the House last night that the hon. member for East Northumberland (Mr. Cochrane) stated that the Hon. Sydney Fisher was a director of the Montreal ' Herald ' Company'. I wish to state most emphatically that this is not the case, that I have- not been a director of the Montreal ' Herald ' Company since I have been a minister of the Crown ; and, furthermore, when I became a minister of the Crown I disposed of my stock in that company, and have had no connection with it in a pecuniary way since.
