GERMAN MORATORIUM

BILL INTRODUCED BY BRITISH GOVERNMENT TO AUTHORIZE SEIZURE OF GERMAN FUNDS


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Samuel William Jacobs

Liberal

Mr. S. W. JACOBS (Cartier):

I should like to direct a question to the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett). A United Press dispatch announces this morning that Right Hon. Neville Chamberlain, Chancellor of the Exchequer for Great Britain, obtained first reading of a bill to authorize an exchange clearing house in Great Britain to seize German funds to compensate those who are affected by the moratorium in connection with the Young and Dawes plans. A few days ago an item appeared in the Berlin press stating that if Great Britain were to resort to any such action the German government would feel compelled to seize funds belonging not only to Great Britain and to her colonies, but to the self-governing dominions, including of course, Canada. Is the Prime Minister able to give us some official intimation with regard to this momentous situation?

Hon. J. L. RALSTON (Shelburne-Yar-mouth):

I wish to draw the attention of the . Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) to the matter of the tariff board reports. The acting Minister of Finance (Sir George Perley) has laid on the table of the house to-day three reports by

Bank f>f Canada

the tariff board. As hon. members know, the only copy of these reports which is available for members is the copy that is filed with the clerk. I should like to urge on the government consideration -of the matter of providing for the printing of these reports. I think they are of interest to members of the house as well as the country.

Right Hon. S@

I may say that these reports tabled today call for no action whatever. The question o-f expense of printing all these reports would be quite an important one. However, I shall bring it to the attention of the Finance minister.

DREDGING AT TRACADIE


On the orders of the day:


CON

Hugh Alexander Stewart (Minister of Public Works)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. H. A. STEWART (Minister of Public Works):

Yesterday the hon. member for Gloucester (Mr. Veniot) inquired about dredge No. 12, which had been at Tracadie. I promised that I would secure some additional information to-day. In some respects my answer yesterday was not absolutely correct. I understood the hon. member to inquire whether the dredge was being moved for the purpose of engaging in work elsewhere. In that sense my answer was correct. I find that this dredge was in need of substantial repairs, and advantage was taken of the high spring tide to take it out of the position which it occupied, and it is now in deeper water ready to be taken to Chatham for the overhaul which it requires.

Mr. S. W. JACOBS (Cartier):

Is that Chatham, Ontario, or Chatham, New Brunswick?

Mr. STEWART (Leeds) You may take it either place. As to the program for that dredge, it will be settled when parliamentary appropriations for the session are completed and the program drawn up.
