Hon. CHARLES MARCEL (Bonaventure):
Will the minister allow me to ask him a question in regard to this matter?
I am glad to be interrupted at this moment by the entrance to the chamber of the hon. Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Stevens) with whom I have had the honour of sitting in the house for many years. I am glad to see him restored to health and strength.
I was about to ask the minister whether it is true that in certain branches of his department which remain under the control of the Dominion, a number of officials have been dismissed.
