Henry Lumley Drayton (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

The object of the Bill is to provide for an inspection of these companies, there being none at present. There is a provision in the existing Act under which the Minister of Finance may, if he so desires, have an inspection made of any particular company. He is not in a position, however, to know what companies should or should not be inspected; and complaints are not made about companies until something is wrong with them, when inspection is generally too late. Trust and loan companies' will both be made subject to inspection because I shall introduce in a moment another Bill dealing with the latter class. The new legislation will place

both trust and loan companies in exactly the same position as insurance companies. An annual inspection is provided for because only by an annual inspection is it possible for any one to tell when special examinations ought to be made.

Mr. I. E. PEDLOW (South Renfrew):

Air. Speaker, I would like to ask the Government a question of supreme importance at the present time. I noticed in a recent issue of the Toronto Globe a reference made to some correspondence that had passed between the Acting Premier of the Dominion and the Premier of Ontario regarding certain representations forwarded, on behalf of the Armenian people, by the Canadian Government to the Imperial authorities, and by the latter to the Supreme Council of the League of Nations. I would like to know the tenor and nature of the representations made and which, according to press rejwrts, have been endorsed by the Premier of Ontario.

Rt. Hon. Sir GEORGE FOSTER (Acting Prime Minister):

I may say to my hon. friend that the general tenor of the representations made to the Supreme Council of the League of Nations through the Imperial Government was along the lines of securing by the making and operation of the Treaties of Peace, immunity for Armenian communities from oppression and massacre and the elimination of Turkish authority as far as they are concerned.
