When may we expect
the report of the Commission issued to Sir Charles Davidson to inquire into the purchase of various materials and supplies, , submarines, etc.? It is stated in the newspapers that Sir Charles Davidson has handed a portion of the report to. among others, a clergyman, who was requested to look over it and give his opinion with regard to the purchase of submarines. It the report is ready to be handed out to private individuals, it surely ought to be submitted to this House. I have been told-I do not know how accurate my information is-that Sir Charles Davidson is ready to submit his report, and has offered to submit an interim report to the Government, but there has apparently been no expression of a wish on the part of the Government to have that report. That may or may not be true, but the min-
ister will be able to tell me when we may expect an interim report at least, giving the proceedings to date.
