Mr. MURDOCK:

I am not sure that the first order was completely ready to bring down, before the other question was asked, and we decided that it would be advisable to bring the five years down together.

Arthur Meighen (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MEIGHEN:

That is not an answer at all. The hon. minister stated that it was ready. If it is ready there is no reason for delay. That is an order of the House and the return should be brought down when ready. The minister is simply trifling with the orders of the House.

ROYAL COMMISSION ON PENSIONS


On the Orders of the Day.


PRO

Levi William Humphrey

Progressive

Mr. HUMPHREY:

I believe that last year a Royal Commission was appointed to inquire into certain charges laid by the Great War Veterans against the Board of Pension Commissioners. That report has now been submitted to parliament, and printed and distributed to members. What is the intention of the government in regard to putting into effect immediately the conclusions of that Royal Commission?

Mr. BELAND:

I understand that an item for pensions was held over some days ago with

the intention of affording members an opportunity to discuss that feature of the report itself. I expect this item will be under consideration within a week.
