Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

I am afraid that this question has been standing longer than it should; I shall endeavour to expedite an answer. That is really all that I can say in the absence of the Acting Minister of Trade and Commerce. The minister has bad a great many important matters to deal with during the last two or three weeks, and I suppose it is on that account that he has not been able to give this matter his personal attention. I shall send him a written memorandum in regard to it.

Question stands.

Hon. Mr. LEMIEUX:

There is a cable despatch to;day stating that the Belgian Minister of the Interior has offered the Canadian authorities a parcel of land near Ypres for the purpose of the erection of a war memorial or museum as a permanent tribute to the Canadian troops. May I ask the Prime Minister whether that is the fact, and, if so, whether the offer will be accepted by the Government?

Sir ROBERT BORDEN:

A suggestion was made to the Governments of France and Belgium with respect to certain sites in both countries which are intimately associated with the engagements in which the Canadian Expeditionary Corps gained such distinction. I have no doubt that the suggestion, will be adopted. Doubtless the news item to which my hon. friend refers relates to one of these sites. There is an item in the Supplementary Estimates upon which there will he opportunity for discussion with regard to this proposal.

Sir SAM HUGHES:

I observe a despatch in the press this morning to the effect that, contrary to what were generally understood to be the terms of the armistice, the Polish

troops have attacked the Ukrainians. In view of the fact that we have over half a million of these Cossacks in Canada who have been good British subjects, I would like to know from the 'Prime Minister-he may not wish to give an answer to-day-what is the relationship which exists between the Poles and Ukrainians in the East.

Mr. D. D. McKENZIE (Cape Breton, fNorth):

I believe that in August, 1917, certain prohibitory restrictions were placed upon horse racing in this country. It has been brought to my notice that advertisements are abroad now announcing that races in the old-fashioned way, betting, etc., are to be resumed in Canada on the fifteenth of this month. What is the condition, and is that horse racing allowable?

Both before my retnrn and since my return applications were made to the Government for the modification of the Orders in Council which have already been laid upon the table of the House. About a week or ten days after my return I personally received a delegation upon the subject; the application was considered, and the delegation was subsequently informed that no change nor modification could be made in the Orders in Council.
