FISHING BOUNTY

CON

Alfred Duranleau (Minister of Fisheries; Minister of Marine)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. ALFRED DURANLEAU (Acting Minister of Fisheries):

I should like to say

a word of explanation with respect to the question raised by the hon. member for Antigonish-Guysborough (Mr. Duff) the other day concerning the bounty paid fishing vessels during the years 1929, 1930, 1931 and

1932. Sessional paper 115A which was laid on the table did not give the information for the year 1932, to which my hon. friend objected.

I should like to explain that we have not completed the payments of those bounties for 1932. I am told that these payments will be concluded about March 15, and then I will be pleased to complete the information requested by the hon. gentleman.

Mr. WILLIAM DUFF (Antigonish-Guysborough) :

It is quite possible that the payments have not been made, but the information is in the department. The applications for bounty are supposed to reach the departs ment by the end of November, I believe, and the department has had two and a half

Questions

months in which to obtain complete information. It may be quite true that the money has not been paid, but there is no doubt that the department can furnish the information for which I asked.

Mr. DURANLEAU:

My information is that these payments are never completed before March 15. During January and February we were still receiving applications from these fishing companies, so we must wait until the claims are all in before we can adjust and pay them, since we have only a certain amount appropriated for the payment of these bounties.
