Mr. PUGSLEY.

In matters of the kind referred to in these questions, the minister must take the responsibility of his action, and does not usually, I think, feel prepared to state upon whose representations matters have been decided upon. All I can say-all I think proper to say

is that in the matters referred to, the action taken was taken by direction of the minister.

reply to a question on the order paper of February 11, 1909, ' Hansard ' p. 1176, vol. 1, p, 1909.

2. There is in the Department of Customs one copy of a report by W. A. Graham Clark, on ' Manufacture of Woollen Worsted and Shoddy in France and England,' published by the government printing office, Washington, 1909.
