Right Hon. S@

Under the terms of enlistment of Canadians for service in South Africa pensions were guaranteed by the imperial government at rates prescribed by imperial regulations, and fully understood at the time. So far as known, the imperial authorities have fulfilled their obligations in this regard. In addition to the provision just referred to, there has been a large fund raised in Canada, known as the Patriotic Fund, from which cases of special hardship have received generous aid. The government have been investigating the various cases with a view of determining whether any of them require special consideration on the part of the Canadian government. A conclusion will be reached shortly.

INQUIRIES FOR RETURNS.

Haughton Lennox

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HAUGHTON LENNOX.

Before the Orders of the Day are called, I am compelled to ask again for the report of the Cattle-guards Commission, which I moved for over a year ago. At that time I had the promise of the premier that it would be brought down immediately, and the other day, when I called attention to the matter, the Minister of Railways asked me to make a formal motion for the return, which, he said, was all ready and would be brought down immediately. Since then three weeks or more have elapsed.

Mr. GEO. TAYLOR.

I would like to inquire of the Minister of Agriculture in reference to a return which I moved for some weeks ago in regard to the cheese-curing stations at Broekville, Woodstock and, I think, Sherbrooke. When I put a question on the paper with reference to these stations, the minister asked me to move for a return, and promised that it would be brought down immediately; but two or three weeks have elapsed, and it is not yet down.

Uriah Wilson

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. URIAH WILSON.

I would like to ask when those constituencies wrhich have not yet received their voters' lists may expect them ? Some of the constituencies got their voters' lists last year. The riding of Lennox has not yet received its list, and T suppose there are a number of other constituencies in the same position. I do not see why some constituencies should be supplied nearly a year ahead of others.
