The MINISTER OF RAILWAYS AND CANALS.

That is a question. The hon. gentleman was told that if he wished for a return and moved for it, I would bring it down. But the hon. gentleman never moved for it.

No, I said if it was desired I would bring down a return, but I did not undertake to give that information, all of it, in answer to a question.

Hon. Mr. HAGGART.

I put a question as to the number of locomotives purchased by the department since the date mentioned, the 1st of January, 1897, the number of locomotives and cars that had been made as a result of the tenders being asked for and the contracts entered into, and the hon. gentleman says he has a statement prepared which he can furnish.

The MINISTER OF RAILWAYS AND CANALS.

No, but a number were being made, and if the hon. gentleman desired a list of all these I would furnish it. But I would not undertake to furnish to those questions an answer which would necessarily be so voluminous.

Hon. Mr. HAGGART.

The hon. gentleman can end the controversy if he will undertake to lay anything he may have on the Table so that we can consider it three or four hours in advance. Will the hon. minister do that 1

I do not want the hon. gentleman to put me in the wrong when I was not in the wrong. I will be very glad to furnish the hon. gentleman with the information, and if he asks me now to bring it down I shall have it prepared and brought down at the earliest possible moment.

Mr. HAGGART

minister thinks we would be liable to ask for in connection with this matter, possibly he might give the subject a few moment's reflection and have these documents brought down, because we will get along a great deal faster if we have these documents.

There is the large item of $450,000 in connection with the Murray harbour branch an regard to which there may be some documents. If be had them before we attack the item, it will enable us to shorten our questions very much.
