Liberal

Mr. MOTHERWELL:

We do not publish anything ourselves, as I say; it is the product of the office in Rome. We have not sent any representatives to the annual gathering these last two years, but when we do go there, if we think they are sending out too many copies, we can make representations to that effect. It has been considerably reduced.

Mr. SPENCER:

Do I understand that the central office at Rome sends out these bulletins at the pleasure of the department and as many copies as the department wishes, and charges them to the department?

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

I promised the leader of

the opposition (Mr. Meighen) that I would lay on the table of the House, before adjournment to-night, the correspondence which he requested last night and of which he spoke at three o'clock this afternoon. I have here a copy of all correspondence, relating to the issue of a license to the Bridge River Power Company, Limited, for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1925. This correspondence was asked for by the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Stevens). I came back to the House to-night ready to put on the table all the correspondence on the matter, and I have been trying to get in touch with my colleagues, the Minister of Railways (Mr. Graham) and the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Low), who have further correspondence in relation to it, but unfortunately I have not been able to get in touch with them in the last few minutes. I will undertake to see that the correspondence is tabled the first thing on Monday and that we do not go on with the discussion of this matter until there has been ample opportunity for hon. gentlemen to read it.
