Mr. A. U. G. BURY (East Edmonton):

I desire to call the attention of the Secretary of State to the fact that in the province of Alberta there is a large number of companies whose applications for charters have been accepted, to whom promises of the issue of charters have been given and who acting on that undertaking have actually entered into contracts with drilling companies. I notified the Secretary of State that I intended to ask this question to-day, in order to ascertain what the government was prepared to do and why the charters were not issued.

Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Acting Secretary of State):

I received the notification

of my hon. friend that he was going to raise this question to-day. The number of people who are asking for incorporation of oil companies at the present time is simply appalling, and the matter has been engaging my attention for some time. It is a matter of very considerable importance. I expect to reach a decision to-morrow and will inform my hon. friend in regard to it, but those to whom intimation has been given, as has been suggested, that they would receive their charters, will receive them.
