Hon. J. W. EDWARDS (Frontenac-Addington):
May I ask the government, for my own information as well as foi the benefit of the House generally, to be good enough to state what departments are being administered 'at present by acting ministers? Some departments, I understand, are under the con-
tro! of ministers with seats in ihe Senate; what other departments are at the moment being administered by ministers who are without seats either in the Senate or in this House? I ask this question in order that 1 may know just where to go when I want to transact business in connection witlh the various departments.
