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

I read to the House at a previous sitting a copy of the order in council based upon a recommendation of the Department of National Defence for the appointment of a committee to study various suggestions that have been made with respect to a national flag. At the time I announced to the House that the government would not think of taking any action in this matter without parliament in the first instance adopting a resolution with reference thereto. Under the circumstances, it has seemed advisable to the government that no action should be taken, even by the sub-committee, until parliament itself takes action in the matter, and a subsequent order in council has accordingly been passed, a copy of which I shall read to the House and lay on the table. The order in council reads:

The Committee of the Privy Council have had before them a report, dated 20th June, 1925, from the Minister of National Defence, submitting that in accordance with representations made in parliament by the Prime Minister on the 17th June, 1925, with respect to the procedure that should be followed in regard to the question of the adoption of a Canadian national flag for use ashore and that it is desirable that the matter should be decided by parliament before any action should be taken thereon by a committee, and recommending for these reasons that the order in council of the 23rd April, 1925 (P.C. 623) appointing a committee to consider and report on the most suitable design for a Canadian national flag for use ashore, be cancelled.

The committee concur in the foregoing, and advise that the said order in council be cancelled, accordingly.

The order,

as the hon. member will see on perusal^ came, in the regular way in which ordinary routine business of the government departments comes up. It came in the first instance from the Department of National Defence. It was purely a departmental matter.

Hon. J. A. ROBB (Acting Minister of Finance) :

On the 13th May, on the motion of the hon. member for Brant (Mr. Good), an order of the House was passed respecting the operations of the Finance Act. I am advised by officials of the Department of Finance that the information required under this return is in course of preparation, but that it will take several days before the information is completed. It will be remembered that when the motion was under discussion I drew the hon. member's attention to the fact that the information desired was of a very extensive character, practically covering in detail the operations under the Finance Act from its inception to date. While the information is all readily available from the records of the department, it has been found necessary to re-tabulate a considerable portion of it in order to answer the questions.
