Hon. GROTE STIRLING (Minister of National Defence):

The hon. member was

good enough to let me know that he was going to ask this question. The chairman of the commission has kept me aware from time to time of the progress being made by the commission. The last communication I received was a week ago, in which he intimated that the evidence which the commission proposed to take in Vancouver was complete, but that the commission proposed to take a little more evidence in Vancouver island, and then would hasten to the preparation of its report. In a previous communication he had intimated that the secretarial work of preparing the evidence for consideration was well in hand, and I anticipate that within the next few days it is probable that the report will reach the government.

PAYMENTS OUT OF FEDERAL TREASURY TO PROVINCE OF ONTARIO


On the orders of the day:


CON

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

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

A few days ago a question was

asked by an hon. member as to what the contribution of Canada to the province of Ontario was per month. I stated at the time that I believed it was $600,000. My observation was interrupted by the suggestion that it probably was larger because Quebec was receiving that sum, and I then suggested $750,000. The fact is that when the agreement was arrived at in July last a provisional amount was paid for the months of August and September, subject to adjustment, of $750,000 in the case of Ontario and $600,000 in the case of Quebec. Subsequently, when matters were finally arranged, the amount paid and agreed to be paid was $600,000 per month in the case of Ontario and $500,000 in the case of the province of Quebec.

PENSIONS FOR THE BLIND


On the orders of the day:


IND

Alan Webster Neill

Independent

Mr. A. W. NEILL (Comox-Alberni):

May I ask the Prime Minister if he will give instructions to have the committee on industrial and international relations called together to deal with the question of pensions for the blind, which was remitted to it for the second time before the recess. A few days ago the Prime Minister in answer to a similar question indicated that it would be dealt with in due course on the order paper, but he was not aware at that time that in his absence the report had been brought down and remitted back for further consideration and action.

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Prime Minister):

I am afraid that the hon. gentleman has somewhat exaggerated the ability of the First Minister to deal with a committee. I cannot direct a committee to do anything-I am very pleased to be able to make that statement-but I will bring the matter to the attention of the chairman, who doubtless will be made aware of it by what has been said by the hon. gentleman himself.
