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

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for Ontario (Mr. Kaiser) made an inquiry regarding civil service superannuation and contributions to the superannuation fund, and I promised him a reply to-day. The information I have is that the matter is now being assembled by the Department of the Secretary of State; the work is not yet completed.

May I take this opportunity of saying to hon. members who probably are peeved at the delay in bringing down returns, that we are advised by the different departments that the extraordinary number of returns required this session and their voluminous character have added materially to the expense of carrying on the work, and we are further advised that some of the departments must have either more time or more help to enable them to complete the work.
