RUSSIAN OIL SHIPMENTS


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Ian Alistair Mackenzie

Liberal

Hon. IAN MACKENZIE (Vancouver Centre):

I wish to direct once more to the

right hon. the Prime Minister a question which I asked on October 20, the day he was absent from the house. May I read the question again:

In the absence of the Prime Minister I desire to ask a question of the hon. Minister of Justice (Mr. Guthrie). I see in this morning's press a heading, Second Soviet Oil Shipment Arrives. Would the government be good enough to give the name of the consignor and consignee of this second cargo of oil, and also indicate if it is now the policy of the government to countenance such shipments?

May I ask the right hon. gentleman whether he will be good enough today or tomorrow to reply to that question.

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

Perhaps the hon. gentleman will

put the question on the order paper. Part of the question involves the making known of the business of people-through the department, which this house has steadily declined to do, as I daresay the hon. gentleman knows.
