Peter John Veniot (Postmaster General)

Liberal

Mr. VENIOT:

The hon. member for

Leeds (Mr. Stewart) asked for correspondence in connection with the ruling of the Department of Justice. I may say that no communication was had between the Department of Justice and my own department. I am now submitting the ruling which was given in 1919 at the request of the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, and in 1922 at the instance of the Civil Service Commission. I am laying the paper on the table as I got it from them.

Then the hon. gentleman referred to the number of postmasters dismissed from October 1, 1926 to February 1. 1928, and asked how many of these were appointees of the Civil Service Commission. I lay this information on the table for the hon. member's use. The hon. member for Toronto South (Mr. Geary) has stated in regard to the return on the Picton case that ihe file is not complete and referred to four affidavits by Edward Sprague, Robert Purtelle, Hiram Ellis and Durward Cole, and intimated that there was correspondence transmitting these affidavits which had been omitted from the return. In this connection I wish to inform the hon. gentleman that there was no correspondence accompanying those affidavits. They were personally handed to my secretary by Mr. Charles Hanna of Belleville.
