Mr. JOSEPH ARCHAMBAULT (Cham-bly-Vercheres) :
I should like to call the attention of the House to what I may call either a direct disobedience of the Orders of the House or a gross neglect on the part of the Government regarding Orders passed by the House. I would first call the attention of the Government to an Order passed on October 20, 1919, regarding the names of the shareholders of the Grand Trunk as they appeared on the books of the company on October 9, 1919. I called the attention of the House on November 10, 1919, to the order for this list, and the Minister of Justice (Mr. Doherty) replied that the list was being prepared. On June 10 last, I again called the attention of the House to the matter, and the Minister of Railways and Canals (Mr. Reid^ told me that it would take seven or eight months to get the list. Those seven or eight months have now elapsed.' On June 26 last, I again called the attention of the Government to the matter, and I did not get the list. The list has not yet been filed or brought down. So much for the list of Grand Trunk 'shareholders. .
On April 19, 1920, an Order was passed for a statement showing the number of farmers who enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. On April 21, 1920, another Order was passed for a statement showing fines collected under the Inland Revenue Act for 1919 and amounts paid for collecting such fines. On April 26,
1920, another Order was passed for a statement showing the quantity of liquor imported into Canada by provinces since 1913. No returns have been made as regards these orders, although some of them are more than a year old. Is the Government still persisting in its desire to withhold information on these matters?
