Hon. E. B. KYCKMAN (Minister of National Revenue) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 30, to amend the Customs Act. He said: Mr. Speaker, this bill is very simple in character as it involves only four technical or administrative amendments. There is no question of principle involved upon which I should imagine there would be any diversion of opinion.

Mr. CASGRAIN:

Are the statements issued by the radio commission at Ottawa published in French?

He said: Mr. Speaker, on Monday the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) stated that this question could not be answered because it was so indefinite. I had in mind the orders and directions issued by the radio commission in Ottawa to the various parts of the country, and I desire to know whether or not these were printed in the French language.
