Mr. JOSEPH JEAN (Maisonneuve):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask the Minister of Justice if he has received a complaint from the Montreal Bar Association against Mr. W. J. Reilly, superintendent of bankruptcy, and if so what answer he has given to that association? An article from a Montreal newspaper dated February 17, 1933, reads as follows:

Complaints against Mr. Reilly, Superintendent of Bankruptcy.

Hon. HUGH GUTHRIE (Minister of Justice):

He has asked his question. At the moment I have no recollection of having received any representations concerning the superintendent of bankruptcy from the Montreal Bar Association. However if I did receive such representations I forwarded them to the Department of Finance, because the superintendent of bankruptcy is now under that department.

Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Quebec East):

May I ask the Minister of Finance if he has received the resolution of the Montreal Bar Association mentioned by my hon. friend from Maisonneuve (Mr. Jean) and what he has done with regard to it?

Hon.E.N.RHODES (Minister of Finance): Mt. Speaker, as far as my memory serves me I have received no resolution from the Montreal Bar Association. I did, however, receive a resolution from the council of the Montreal Bar Association and some inquiries were made by myself in respect to the matter in question, but no official acknowledgment has been made, solely for the reason that as my hon. friend knows I have been indisposed of late. But an answer will be forthcoming in a few days.

Mr. WILLIAM DUFF (Antigonish-Guys-borough):

Mr. Speaker, before the orders of

the day are called I should like to refer to a question which appeared in the votes and proceedings of Friday last, February 17, 1933. The question I have in mind has reference to the bounties paid fishing vessels and to fishermen during the years 1929, 1930, 1931 and 1932. Yesterday, only four days after my

question appeared in the votes and proceedings, the acting Minister of Fisheries (Mr. Duran-leau) was good enough to file sessional paper No. 115a. This paper gives particulars regarding the years 1929, 1930 and 1931, but the answers concerning the year 1932 which, for my purposes, are the most important, are in every case "not paid yet." I wish to state that this return is incomplete. I am not blaming the acting minister, because I appreciate fully his position, but I want to say that the official who prepared this return should be disciplined. I want the information, and I am willing to wait for it.
