CANADIAN LEGATION IN JAPAN

CON

Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

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

I desire to lay on the table the documents asked for in the motions made by the hon. member for Bow River (Mr. Garland) and the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Mackenzie). There are four copies and the correspondence covers the language of both motions except with respect to plans and specifications, which after their approval were sent to Tokyo and have not been returned. It was because of the hope that they would be returned here sooner that the return was not filed earlier. It is now filed without the plans and specifications.

NEWFOUNDLAND REPORT

CON

Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

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

I mentioned yesterday that the report of the royal commission on Newfoundland was a document over which we had no jurisdiction. It was printed in England, in fact, but after the hon. member for Temis-couata (Mr. Pouliot) had made some observations in the early part of the session steps were taken to procure a few extra copies. I now table one copy, with a memorandum issued by the lords of the treasury. There are also being deposited in the library of parliament as many as perhaps twenty copies, and there are also a few copies available at the office of the Secretary of State for External Affairs, and if any hon. member is particularly interested in securing a copy they will be furnished as long as they last. In the meantime this copy is being tabled for the edification of the hon. member for Temiscouata.

REFERENCE TO SUPREME COURT OF RIGHT TO MAKE RULINGS ON POINTS OF LAW AND FIXING OF VALUES

CON

Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

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

There was a slight amendment made in the order in council passed with reference to the question submitted to the Supreme Court of Canada regarding the interpretation of certain sections of the Tariff Board Act. The description of the statute was incorrect, and it has been amended. As I laid on the table the original order in council, I now deposit a copy of this one.

Hon. IAN MACKENZIE (Vancouver Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question

of privilege. I am sorry the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Sutherland) is not in his seat. On the sixteenth of March while the house was in committee of supply I asked the minister this question:

It is in connection with the sale of the rifle range on Lulu island in British Columbia. Has the range been sold and, if so, was it sold by tender?

Hon. Donald M. Sutherland (Minister of National Defence): No, it has not been sold.

Mr. Mackenzie (Vancouver): Have tenders been called for the sale of the range?

Mr. Sutherland: No.

I hold in my hand a notice calling for tenders for the sale of this rifle range. I am

sure the minister must have made his reply inadvertently, and perhaps he will take this as a notice to explain why the answer to my question was given as it was.

Mr. A. E. MUNN (Vancouver North):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday I directed a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce which will be found at page 1933 of Hansard, in connection with the Sutherland report and in answer to my question the minister immediately said "No, it is not a fact." Then after several minutes, and after a discussion of other matters, tlhe hon. minister modified his answer, but I find it printed in Hansard in one paragraph with his original answer. I would like to know if that is the usual custom.

Hon. H. H. STEVENS (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

If the hon. member is

implying that I in any way suggested to Hansard what it should do I can tell him that I did not do anything of the sort. As a matter of fact I never change Hansard.

Mr. HUMPHREY MITCHELL (East Hamilton):

Recently in a speech in the city of Hamilton the Prime Minister intimated that the government would build a post office there under the construction program of the dominion government. The sun is now shining on both sides of the fence, and I wonder if the Prime Minister could indicate to the house how soon we may expect an announcement of government policy in connection with this building program.

Thomas Reid

Mr. THOMAS REID (New Westminster):

On March 13 I asked a question of the Minister of Fisheries regarding the orders in council which had been passed allowing seines to operate in the mouth of the Fraser river. I asked if the minister would consider the advisability of having those orders in council and other matters pertaining to fisheries

Relief Act, 1934

placed before the fisheries committee. The minister replied on March 13 that he would be pleased to discuss this matter with his colleagues and inform me whether it was considered advisable or not. I ask him now whether he has considered that question.
