Mr. MEIGHEN:

I do not know what the Deputy Minister of Justice may have felt or thought or done about the matter; but I do not think the government, as a government, authorized the cancellation of any arrangement. If so, I knew nothing of it, and I would be surprised that such is the fact.

Mr. McKENZIE:

My right hon. friend may rest assured that I have the correct information, because I have it from Mr. O'Connor himself. It is not second hand at all.

Hon. W. R. MOTHERWELL (Minister of Agriculture) :

This heading is somewhat misleading. I do not know exactly why it

Redistribution

is inserted in this way, but this is the way in which it has been carried in the estimates from year to year. It is really for what is familiarly known as the free freight which the Government of the Dominion, the western provinces and the railways have arranged to carry for the settlers in those dry areas. About $25,000 was for Alberta, $10,000 for Manitoba and $15,000 for Saskatchewan.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

There are

only two remaining items-401, and 426 relating to Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment. Possibly, if there is no objection, we might pass them; and if there is likely to be any discussion on them it could take place when the main estimates come up.
