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

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

With respect to this and the following question I mentioned the other day that these questions asking if the government will comply with certain requests involving the expenditure of public moneys are highly improper questions to be asked. They were stricken out when asked by other members, and I think the same rule should be followed with respect to these.

Charles Hazlitt Cahan (Secretary of State of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CAHAN:

An answer to this question cannot be given before a considerable length of time. The postmistress at Big Beaver is, of course, well known, but whether she is a British subject or not depends on a number of facts which we have to elicit, such as who is her father? Where was he born? Did he become naturalized in Canada? There are many other questions to be asked and it will therefore take us some time to ascertain the facts by inquiry of the family.

Question stands.
