Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; Minister of Finance and Receiver General; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

These three questions,

Mr. Speaker, are all in the same class and, as you will observe, they cannot be answered. The suggestion that we should give the names of persons who have applied for loans on their properties under the provisions of the Farm Loan Act is something that, I think the house will admit, cannot possibly be entertained.

Joseph-François Laflèche

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. LAFLECHE:

Who are the manufacturers and saw-mill owners in the county of Wolfe, Quebec, who have made their income tax and sales tax reports to the government during the years 1919 to 1930?

Mr. BE'NNETT: This question, Mr. Speaker, as I think you will readily agree, is of a type which thus far has not been answered in the House of Commons, on the ground .that the department could not make known the names of individuals or firms. That was the attitude taken by the former administration.
