I have the honour to inform the House that the Clerk of the House has received from the Clerk1 of the Crown in Chancery a Certificate of the Election and Return of Sir Henry Lumley Drayton, for the Electoral District of Kingston.
' (Translation.) Air. Speaker, I beg to introduce to you, Sir Henry Lumley Drayton, who has been returned for the electoral district of Kingston. Sir Henry has signed the roll and has been sworn in; he now wishes to take his seat.
from the Minister of Finance, whom I welcome to his seat in the House, if he is in a position to inform the House what amount of the loan of $25,000,000 to Rou-mania has already been advanced. I ask this question because I regard it as one of great importance and urgency in view of the fact that I was informed yesterday by a prominent gentleman who has just returned from Roumania that the "lei" the monetary unit of Roumania,, which in normal times is worth 20 cents, is now fluctuating between half a cent and three cents.
In view of this, does the Government intend to advance any more money to Roumania, if there is any balance of the $25,000,000 not yet advanced?
Mr. J. A. ROBB (Chateauguay and Huntingdon) (Translation):
Mr. Speaker, before the orders of the day are called. I wish to enquire from the minister of Trade and Commerce, whether Canada is represented at the International Trade Congress now in session at Atlantic City?
