James Dew Chaplin

Conservative (1867-1942)


Conditions are the same,

The Budget-Mr. Chaplin
Recently during this very session members of parliament have gone on record that a duty on eggs and butter is of no use; that it would not do any good. Some since the introduction of the budget have somewhat regretted it. I think the minister might get a little more chloroform and hand it to those fellows because they are not in line with the others. Of course that chloroform has been used further. The Minister of National Revenue himself once or twice has been chloroformed too.
