Liberal

Hon. J. L. RALSTON (Minister of National Defence):

The hon. member for Kingston City (M-r. Ross) on the 22nd of May referred to the production of an order in council for which he said he had asked. I cannot find any record of his having asked f-or it before, and I have consulted the Department of the Secretary of State. So far as I have been able to ascertain, no motion for a return has appeared in the votes and proceedings, but perhaps it will serve my bon. friend's purpose if I send a copy of the order in council across to him.
