Mr. H. B. ADSHEAD (East Calgary):
would ask the Minister of Railways (Mr. Dunning) or the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Motherwell) if it is the intention of the government to take any action concerning the application made by the railways before the Board of Railway Commissioners to deprive shippers of the right to have attendants on the train to look after the stock in transit.
Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Railways and Canals): The whole matter
has been before the Board of Railway Commissioners for some months now, and I believe that it now stands for hearing and determination. The government has no knowledge of the matter outside of the ordinary routine of an application before the board.
