PENSIONS UNDER CALDER ACT

Right Hon. Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

Before you leave Questions, Mr. Speaker, I may say that the hon-member for Temis-couata (Mr. Gauvreau) asked me a question on Friday which I said I would reply to further to-day. It was in reference to a report which appeared in a despatch published in La Patrie, of Montreal, to the effect that after March 31st no civil servant would be granted pension under the Calder Act unless he had resigned before that date. I am unable to find any authority for that report.

I would like to direct the attention of my hon. friend to the fact that the Pulpwood Commission have not yet reported, and I think he will appreciate that this should not be brought- down until the commission has reported, I am told that Mr. Piche is in the employ of the government of Quebec, and that certain part of his evidence was given to the commission in confidence. I would rather consult with the commission before allowing this motion to pass, if my hon. friend would allow it to stand.

In that connection, I

am informed that the commission upon request has given copies of evidence already adduced before the commission, and as to any of it, I do not say that the commission would be bound to until it reports, but I believe it is. As to the minister's suggestion, that some of the evidence is confidential, I would ask him if the commission had power under the order in council appointing it to take evidence of a confidential character?
