LIB

Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

1 and 2. Clergymen as such are not entitled to free transportation on Canadian railways. The passes in question are issued on account of employees of either the Department of Colonization, Canadian National Railways, or of the Department of Immigration and Colonization, Ottawa.

The issue of this transportation is in accord with the provisions of the Railway Act and of the Immigration Act, which are applicable to all Canadian railways, and the issue of these and all other passes is subject to scrutiny by the Board of Railway Commissioners as provided by legislation.

As competing lines are not required to publish similar information, the Canadian National railways management feel that it is not in the interest of the national railways that the names and addresses of these employees should be published.
