Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I should like to ask the Minister of Public Works just what is the reason for having this question stand as an order for return. It requires simply a word in answer to each of the questions.

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The first question is:

How many letters were sent to temporary employees of the Department of Public Works advising them that their services would be no more required after the last of March, 1932?

Surely one word would answer that. The next question is:

How many of said employees are native born?

Surely one word would answer that. The next question is:

How many of said employees are French speaking?

Surely one word would answer that also, so why should this question be made an order for return?

It will take some time to get this information, and I should think if it comes down as an order for return it will be as satisfactory as an immediate answer.

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I certainly think these questions that can be answered briefly should not be made orders for returns. It may be different if questions require a great deal of research, but the letters here referred to have been recently issued and it should not take long to secure the information.
