The government received
through me an offer from the Premier of Quebec wherein he proposed that the province and the dominion should assume in his province the total burden of direct relief. A few days ago a question was put on the order paper and was answered, and the question was then pursued, if my recollection serves me correctly, by the hon. member for Laprairie-Napierville asking that the correspondence be tabled. That correspondence has been tabled; I do not have it under my hand at the moment, but I shall be glad later when these estimates are under discussion to read the correspondence that passed, so that members of the committee may be fully seized of the attitude of the Quebec government and also of that of the dominion government with respect to the matter.
