QUESTIONS


(Questions answered orally are indicated by an asterisk). translation service


CON

Charles Hazlitt Cahan (Secretary of State of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CAHAN:

An arrangement has been

made for the appointment of one official only in the department of the Secretary of State who is to take charge of the translation of foreign languages, that is, languages other than French and English, into French and English as may be required by the several departments of the government. I infer that this question does not relate to that appointment, but in direct reply to the question I would say that suggestions have been made orally and the government is considering the possibility of the organization of a bureau to have charge of translations other than the translation usually made in the different departments by their regular staffs. As no conclusion has been reached and no report is available I am unable to give a more definite answer to this question.

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

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

As this matter still is

under consideration with the government of the United States obviously it would be impossible to make any statement as to the present position of the negotiations.

Alfred Duranleau (Minister of Fisheries; Minister of Marine)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. DURANLEAU:

I do not think these questions are proper. They are all questions of law and I do not think the minister is bound to answer them. There may be some differences between the two authorities, the provincial and the federal, and it will be for the courts to decide whether the provincial authorities or the federal government can regulate certain things within the boundaries of Ontario.

Mr. HEPBURN:

I think the question is

a proper one. In any event it is a contentious question; the minister can answer it if he so desires.
