May 22, 1922


On the question being called: 1. Has the Legislature of the Province of Saskatchewan, or any person representing said Legislature, made representation, verbally or in writing, to the late Dominion Government, that could be properly construed as an effort to prevent the importation of alcoholic liquor into the Province of Saskatchewan for purpose of export to other Canadian Provinces? 2. If so, what was the nature of such representation?

Mr. MILLAR:

Before this question is answered I would like to explain that a slight error has crept into it, probably a printer's error. This makes quite a material difference in the question, and I would therefore like to ask that it stand over until I have had a chance to correct it.

Question stands.
