Hon. Mr. GUTHRIE: (Solicitor General of Canada; Minister of Militia and Defence)

Unionist

1. The granting of relief to returned men resident in Peterborough was not finally discontinued on April 23. The granting of relief by the Department of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment during the months of January, February and March to unemployed ex-service men was authorized by Order in Council P.C. 43 of January 10, 1921. Towards the end of March it was apparent that the granting of relief in a modified form was still necessary, and provision was made under authority of P.C. 1007 of March 24 to continue relief to married men or single men with dependents until April 23. This date was extended later under authority of P.C. 1615 of May 13 until May 28, 1921.

2. The provision of relief is not limited to ex-service men resident in any particular city or town, but is available to all necessitous cases amongst married or single ex-service men with dependents. In Ontario, relief is administered from the unit offices of the department situated at Toronto, London and Ottawa.

3. The authority under which relief is being granted by the Department expires on May 28, 1921.

UNITED STATES TARIFF-CANADIAN DUTIES


On the Orders of the Day:


?

Hon RODOLPHE LEMIEUX (Maison-neuve and Gaspe) :

On the 26th of May

last I asked the Minister of Finance if, in view of the Emergency Tariff Bill in the United States, it was the Intention of the Government to introduce new tariff resolutions. The answer of my hon. friend was that no such report had yet reached him, and he certainly had no proposals to make to the House at present. I suppose the words "at present" were used in view of the probability of the Government taking action in the matter by Order in Council. I read in the Montreal Gazette of this morning, the statement that as the result of the United States Tariff now being in force and of prohibitive duties being applied to Canadian agricultural products, countervailing duties have been decided upon by the Canadian Government. I shall not read the whole of the article, but simply quote the announcement made by the Collector of Customs of Montreal, Mr. Weldon.
