Mr. PUGSLEY:

I would like to give the minister notice of an amendment which I had intended to move, but which my hon. friend from Halifax (Mr. Maclean) will move for me, to the item providing for the $15,000,000 loan to the Canadian Northern. I propose that as a condition of the loan the Canadian Northern shall give to His Majesty an option which may be exercised at any time within five years for the transfer of all the property of the Canadian Northern railway and the connected systems at a price which may be fixed by the Governor General in Council. That is the effect of it.

Mr. LEMIEUX:

May I ask the Acting

Minister of Railways and Canals (Mr. Reid) to bring down some information as to the two roads to be absorbed by the Transcontinental, the Quebec and Saguenay and the Lotbiniere and Megantic, the amount which the Government will have to pay for the roads, the cost of building them, their actual equipment, what remains to be built of both, the gross and net receipts of both and, generally speaking, such information as we should have to enable us to intelligently discuss this question? Would my hon. friend let me have that on Monday?
