SHIPMENT OF CATTLE TO GREAT BRITAIN


On tie Orders of the Day:


CON

Henry Alfred Mullins

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. H. A. MULLINS (Marquette):

In

view of the fact that a number of the regular boats carrying cattle have been taken off, I would like to ask if the government are making any provision for cargo space for the movement of cattle from Canada. The situation is very serious, with large numbers of feed cattle ready to move. A number of these boats have been put into drydock by the Tegular lines, and I think the government should do something to facilitate the movement of cattle.

Hon. W. R. MOTHERWELL (Minister of Agriculture):

If I understood my hon. friend aright, he was asking with regard to additional space being provided for the shipment of our cattle. One boat, the Ontario, has been equipped with fore-decks capable of taking care of over one thousand head of cattle. It left just a week or ten days ago with the second load for the United Kingdom. There is another boat that has been launched, but with the exception of these two I do not know of any additional space that has been made available as a result of our friendly intervention.

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS- THREE RIVERS


On the Orders of the Day:


CON

Henry Lumley Drayton

Conservative (1867-1942)

Sir HENRY DRAYTON (West York):

I would like to ask the Acting Minister of Railways and Canals a question having regard to an item appearing in the paper to the effect that the Canadian National railway was securing entrance to Three Rivers, and that that entrance was to be got through the incorporation of a local company in Quebec. I rise to ask whether the same machinery that was devised for the purpose of misleading this House in connection with the Rouyn railway is to be applied in this case.

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

My hon. friend has not only asked a question, but has attempted to give an answer. I am advised that a private company has made application to the Quebec legislature for a charter, and advised also that the Canadian National Railway board is not in any way interested in that- charter.

I am asking that it be referred in the usual way to the standing committee on Railways. Perhaps the hon. member in whose name the bill stands will give an explanation.
