Hon. J. D. REID (Minister of Railways):

Yesterday the leader of the Opposition ((Mr. Mackenzie King) asked two questions. The first was as to when the report of the Department of Railways and Canals for the last fiscal year would be brought down. The deputy tells me that the major portion of the report is printed; that the balance has just been sent to the Bureau to be printed, and that the whole report will be ready for laying on the table of the House in about ten days. The second question was as to when the report of the Board of Canadian National Railways would be brought down. The report will be submitted by the Board of Managemerft at the annual meeting which has been called for the 10th May and will be available for publication after that date.
