Yes, Sir. I am informed that the Governors of the R.B.C. have for some time past been concerned with regard to the executive control of the organisation. For this reason, they appointed Mr. Robert Foot, some three months ago, as general adviser. Mr. Foot has had important business administrative and organising experience. The Governors discussed these matters fully and came to the unanimous conclusion that the chief executive control of the Corporation under wartime conditions, with the great growth of the organisation and the complexity of the administrative and financial problems arising daily, in addition to those relating to the general programme policy and output, called for different qualities and experience from those suited for peacetime. They felt that the circumstances of to-day were completely different from those which existed at the time of Mr. Ogilvie's appointment in 1938. Their views were conveyed to Mr. Ogilvie, with the result that he placed his resignation in the hands of the Governors. It was accepted and announced in terms agreed with Mr. Ogilvie.
Are we to take it for granted then, that the new administration, made necessary as the result of the reorganisation, was a task for which Mr. Ogilvie was not suitable?
