IMPERIAL BOARD OF INVESTIGATION.

STATEMENT BY PRIME MINISTER IN REPLY TO MR. J. E. ARMSTRONG.


On the Orders of the Day:


?

Right Hon. S@

On the 9th of June the hon. member for East Lambton (Mr. Armstrong) asked the following question which will be found in Hansard of that date:

Mr. J. E. Armstrong (East Lambton) : I

should like to ask the Government whether it is true that the Imperial Government has appointed an Imperial Board of Investigation for the purpose of inquiring into trade relations between different parts of the British Empire; whether Sir George Perley has been appointed a member of that board, and when the findings of the board, if such has been appointed, may be expected. I should also like to know whether the

board will Inquire into trade or tariff agreements, and into the tolls or arrangements entered into between the different shipping companies within the Empire?

In answer to this question, I would say that:

1. No such Board has yet been constituted; but the Government have under consideration certain proposals submitted by His Majesty's Government for the constitution of an Imperial Investigation Board to be set up by the Governments of the Empire in pursuance of Resolutions XI and XIV of the Imperial War Conference, 1918. It is proposed that the Board shall have power to inquire into complaints with regard to ocean freights, facilities and conditions in the inter-imperial trade and into similar questions referred to them by the various governments; to survey the facilities for maritime transport within the Empire and to make recommendations for the co-ordination and improvement of such facilities.

2. Such a board not having been finally constituted, no definite ' appointment has yet been made.

3. Answered by paragraph 1.

4. Since the receipt of the proposals mentioned in paragraph 1 a proposal has been put forward to the Imperial Government by the Prime Minister of Canada on behalf of the Government of Canada that full power as to the control of ocean rates and the disposition of the shipping of the British Empire be conferred by concurrent legislation upon a temporary commission representative of the United Kingdom and the Dominions; and that a committee representative of the United Kingdom and the Dominions shall be immediately set up for the purpose of framing a permanent scheme for the same purpose and for the general development of ocean transportation within the Empire. The Prime Minister has further suggested that this proposal be considered in connection with that described in paragraph 1 and has declared that the Government of Canada will be glad to join in the discussion as soon as the Government of the United Kingdom is prepared to consider the matter.
