Had the Prime Minister seen or was he aware of the contents of the pamphlet entitled "Price Spreads and Mass Buying" issued on July the 27th. 1934, by the Hon. H. H. Stevens, at the time Minister of Trade and Commerce, before it was released for distribution?

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

The answer to this question is no, if the words "released for distribution" are used in their ordinary sense; that is, that there were copies of the pamphlet in question in circulation. If, therefore, the words "released for distribution" mean that copies were in circulation, I understand a limited number were, the answer is no.

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

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

This question as framed would seem to indicate that there was necessity for some understanding with reference to the matter referred to. The truth is that all that was necessary under the provisions of the British regulations was that there should be a through transit indicated by the documents accompanying shipments to show that the country of origin was Canada if the grain in question went through the port of New York or any other United States port. So that there is no question of understanding. But I make that statement in order that there may be no difficulty.
