§ Mr. BONAR LAW
As the answer to this question is rather long, I propose, with the permission of the hon. Member, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
Mr. GIDEON MURRAY
Will the Commissioner who is to be appointed Parliamentary representative be a supporter of the Government or a member of the Independent Liberal Opposition; and if he is to be a member of the Independent Liberal Opposition, will the Government kindly reconsider, that, as it will form an obvious anomaly?
