Hon. Mr. KING (Kootenay): (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

1. Of two wing dams under construction, one had about two-thirds of the material in position and the balance on the bank. The material for the other wing dam had been delivered but not placed in position.

2. Yes. Work stopped March 31, 1924,

as appropriation for same lapsed on that date.

3. No.

4. Before wing dam in position had been loaded by the river with sand and gravel, the freshet, carrying driftwood, almost destroyed it.

5. No representations were made by farmers living in the vicinity that more men should be put on this work, but all were employed who could be handled efficiently.

Hon. Mr. GRAHAM:

Mr. Speaker, I think my hon. friend on reflection will see that the department has not the information asked for in this question. I think if he would write himself, he could get the information as quickly as the department could. However, if he does not feel like doing that, I will enclose his inquiry to the parties interested, and see if we will get a reply.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY LINES

LIB

George Perry Graham (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Hon. Mr. GRAHAM:

On Wednesday last

the hon. member for St. John and Albert (Mr. Baxter) asked certain questions regarding the operation and the mileage of the Canadian National Railways in the United States, and also put a query as to the taxes paid by the Canadian National in the United States. The reply that I gave him was that the information concerning all his questions except No-5 would be found in the annual statement placed on the Table. I have the information now in reference to question No. 5, and I presume it will be satisfactory if I mail it to the hon. gentleman, as the question is off the order paper.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

Referring to these two

motions for production of papers, I observed that the mover called "dropped," but as I apprehend the rules, they cannot be dropped without the consent of the House. May I ask why they are dropped; if there is any special reason why they should not pass?

Mr. GRAHAM:

I do not understand the

rule that way, Mr. Speaker. The motions are not in the possession of the House until they are moved. As a matter of fact, every day we see notices of motions and resolutions of hon. members that have been standing on the order paper for weeks and months dropped at the request of the hon. member.
