Mr. MACKENZIE (Vancouver):

I am not sure whether this is the right item, but I should like to ask the minister how much the government has received from the gold tax we imposed last year.

Wesley Ashton Gordon (Minister of Immigration and Colonization; Minister of Labour; Minister of Mines)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GORDON:

The Department of Mines has no record of the amount of the gold tax. That will have to be obtained from the Department of Finance. If there is to be any discussion I suggest that the item stand.

Item stands.

Mr. LAPOINTE:

Mr. Chairman, I do not like to be unpleasant, but I do not think it is proper to enter into all the departments to-night. I did not object when the Minister of Railways called one of his items. Yesterday however the Prime Minister announced that he would like to take up mines, pensions and national health. Railways and Canals was not mentioned, but I did not raise any objection.

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. RHODES:

Perhaps the hon. member for Quebec East would permit me to state that the Prime Minister mentioned the Department of Pensions and National Health, but he had not in mind the fact that that department had already been opened. In the circumstances we thought the committee might substitute another department.
