Hon. W. D. EULER (Minister of National Revenue):
Yesterday the hon. leader of the
opposition (Mr. Bennett) made reference to a question that had been answered in the house the day before, and desired further information. Perhaps I may be permitted to table the information now as the question is no longer on the order paper.
Ottawa, March 12, 1930, Canada.
The Honourable W. D. Euler,
Minister of National Revenue:
On page 492 of Hansard, March 11, the Hon. R. B. Bennett makes the following remarks: "I observe that the last figures given as to revenues are for the 31st of December, 1929. My assumption is that that covers nine months from the 1st day of April to the end of December, 1929, and not a calendar year."
Mr. Bennett's assumption is correct. It was not possible to give the figures for calendar years so they were given for fiscal years and for the first nine months of the fiscal year 1929-30.
Answer to question 19
In the hurried preparation of the answers to Mr. Bennett's question a typographical error was made and the word "supplements" used instead of "supplement." The supplement to Forms T. 204 and T. 204A is T. 204B Special Permit, a copy of which was included with the other forms, and appears in Hansard.
Answer to question 20
At ports and outports where the exportation of intoxicating liquors is heavy certain docks have been designated within the limits of the port or outport so that exportations may be properly cheeked and controlled and short circuiting within the province prevented. The docks so designated are as follows:
Walkerville-known as Riverside and Ford:
1. Bermuda export dock.
2. Rumanapp dock.
3. Border Exporters (known as R. A. Vigneau dock).
4. Peter Paquette dock.
5. Nathanson's dock.
6. Carling's dock.
known as La Salle:
7. Bermuda export dock.
8. Major's dock.
9. Benoit dock.
10. Waverly dock.
An officer may be assigned to the dock at Brighton Beach (port of Windsor) in substitution for a dock or docks rendered unsuitable by shipping conditions.
R. W. Breadner, Commissioner of Customs.
