Mr. PORTER:

No, I meant Mr. Robb.

They were to meet Mr. Robb, but Mr. Robb came to the hotel in the morning before they had an opportunity to meet him. That was the point I was coming to. They were to get a more elaborate and detailed statement in writing from the directors, Gough and Wood on the following morning. The cabinet meeting was called for the following morning, the 15th. Before the cabinet met and before going to the cabinet meeting, the Acting Minister of Finance went to the hotel where Messrs. Stewart, Wood and Gough were staying, and there he got, as Mr. Stewart swore, the detailed statement in writing of the affairs of the Home Bank. Then he left Messrs. Stewart, Wood and Gough and attended the cabinet meeting.
