Hon. Mr. ROBB: (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

1. According to the records of the board, it would appear only one complaint was made to the Board of Grain Commissioners with regard to screenings shipped from the Canadian government elevators since 1915.

2. It would appear from the file that this complaint was allowed to lapse, owing to the complainants in this case failing to prove by evidence they did hot get delivery of the product as called for by the document surrendered.

3. Yes, if moved for, but at the same time there is nothing particularly in the correspondence beyond the information given above.
