Mr. MEIGHEN:

Your right !hon. friend did not do anything of the kind. The minister could not criticize one sentence his hon. friend said, and did not attempt to do so.

Perhaps I should notsay it was my right hon. friend. I will excuse him, but evil communications sometimes get the right man in the wrong place.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

The question yesterday

was as to whether or not the lease to Mr. McArthur or to the Spanish River Company, whichever it is, prevented the granting of any lease to others. The inquiry yesterday was whether there was an application for another lease, to which the answer was "yes". But that does not cover all that my hon. friend asks.

Mr. MEIGHEN:

I suggest that perhaps it might be well not to sit so late that the ministers cannot be down when the House opens.

MINERS AND STEEL WORKERS


On the Orders of the Day: Mr. J. S. WOODSWORTH (Centre Winnipeg) Is the Minister of Labour prepared yet to make a statement as to the conditions in Cape Breton and the result of his mission there?


LIB

James Murdock (Minister of Labour)

Liberal

Hon. JAMES MURDOCK (Minister of Labour):

There is nothing further at the

moment to add to the statements already made except that last night I wired again to the district board of United Mine Workers to ascertain when they would be in a position to resume the consideration of negotiations looking to a settlement. My hon. friend understands that the miners locals and possibly the miners individually through a referendum, are considering the proposals that are now before them for settlement.

PAY OF PERMANENT FORCE


On the Orders of the Day:


CON

George Black

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GEORGE BLACK (Yukon):

Early in May I put three questions on the order paper concerning rates of pay of the permanent force. After leaving the question unanswered until May 20, the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Macdonald, Pictou) allowed them to pass as orders for returns, but since that time no return has been brought down. The same questions were put on the order paper last session and systematically disregarded. The minister was asked these questions during the discussion of his estimates and he promised to put a statement on Hansard. This also he systematically ignored. I would ask the government to table the information. Will these returns be brought down before the estimates

for national defence are taken up? That will be the appropriate time to have them.

The Minister of National Defence is not in his seat, but I may say that I beal'd him remark yesterday that he had a return or two to bring down and would probably tab e them later. I hope that the ones to which my hon. friend refers are among the number.
