PULP WOOD EXPORTS.

LIB

William Paterson (Minister of Customs)

Liberal

Hon. WM. PATERSON (Minister of Customs).

I desire to put in an amended answer to 4 question asked by Mr. Paquet and reported at page 2732 of unrevised ' Hansard.' We made a mistake in putting in the figures of the total export, while the question related only to the exports to the United States alone. The question was as follows:

LORD STRATHCONA-CORRECTION. OF ERRONEOUS REPORT.


On the orders of the day being called.


LIB

Wilfrid Laurier (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Sir WILFRID LAURIER.

I crave permission to lay before the House a cable received last Saturday from Lord Strathcona in regard to a statement made by an hon. member of this House in the course of the discussion on reciprocity:

London, March 11, 1911. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Premier,

Ottawa.

The statement attributed to me by Mr. Goodeve in the House of Commons, Ottawa, on ninth instant, as reported in to-day's London ' Times ' by their Ottawa correspondent that I had said ' that Canadian ministers had been hypnotized by the brilliance of the American offer and had fallen into a trap,' i9

entirely baseless and without foundation in fact. It is unwarranted by anything I have ever said in connection with the reciprocity agreement which I have refrained from discussing. Will you kindly make this known in the House.

Mr. McCRANEY.

I have been spoken to by the promoter of this Bill who tells me that there has been some discussion with regard to the name. He consents to the name being changed to the British Columbia and Central Canada Railway Company. I move that the section be so amended.

I am not aware of that. If there has not been notice, I suppose it would be better that the Bill should stand.

Mr. SPROULE.

As I understand it, the name could not be changed by the committee, but only by the House, and such changes are usually made in the last stages of the Bill and notice is not required.

' Mr. GRAHAM. Is it not customary to change these names on the third reading?
