RADIO-CANCELLATION OF LICENSES

LAB

James Shaver Woodsworth

Labour

Mr. WOODSWORTH (for Mr. Heaps):

For a copy of all letters, telegrams, and correspondence, pertaining to the cancellation of the radio licenses held by the International Bible Students Association.

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister); With respect to this particular motion, I might say the government have no objection to bringing down the correspondence if the hon. member still feels it desirable that this should be done. However, there is a large amount of correspondence on this subject, a great deal of which is the outcome of a suggestion which appeared in the press that as many individuals as possible should write to the government protesting against the cancellation of the licenses. A good many of the letters [DOT] obviously have been solicited. I would suggest that the government lay these communications on the table of the house, and then if the hon. member or any other hon. member thinks he would like them copied, well and good. The expense of copying these papers is very considerable, and has to be borne by the department. I simply make this suggestion in order to save unnecessary expenditure.

Mr. WOODSWORTH:

I do not think it

was the intention of my colleague to put the government to any unwarranted expense or trouble, but the Minister of Marine and Fisheries stated that because of certain

protests made by outsiders these licenses had been cancelled. I believe my hon. friend simply wishes those letters which led to the cancellation of the licenses.

Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Railways and Canals): I notice that the

mover of this resolution is not in the house and I would ask that it stand. I do not want to set it over to the debatable motions, but it appears to duplicate an order which has already been made.
