CANADIAN FARM LOAN ACT

UFA

Henry Elvins Spencer

Mr. SPENCER:

As the rate of interest on new loans being made under the Farm Loan Act is to be 5 per cent, is it the intention of the farm loan board to reduce interest to this figure on loans previously made?

Mr. RHODES:

I would direct the attention of the house to the fact that this question contravenes the rules of the house in that it makes an allegation of fact. Furthermore, it also asks the farm loan board to disclose a decision before it has been reached.

Question dropped.

Mr. BENNETT:

Mr. Speaker, it is quite

obvious that this return and the succeeding 21 returns would, if given effect to, involve the expenditure of large sums of money. It would be impossible to have these returns made during the present session of parliament. Usually information of this kind is obtained from the public accounts committee of the house because the auditor general's report sets out in detail the payments that are made. This is an unusual return to be asked for as it involves considerable toil and the expenditure of large sums of money for something which may not be of much public value. I do not know whether the hon. gentleman has considered his motion from the standpoint of the amount of labour and the expenditures involved but if there is any information he would like to have, the various files could be made available, which would represent the minimum of expense and labour. Possibly he has not thought of this matter from that standpoint, if he has, well and good, if he has not, I should like him to do so.

asking for the list of employees and the wages paid. I have been given to understand that on many of these works only a few men have been employed and in many instances the time of construction was quite short. A few years ago, I made a motion for a return involving the production of correspondence and other records and I think the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) would be quite right in opposing such a motion as it would have involved considerable work. But this motion is different, it involves only the production of a simple sheet of paper giving the names of the workmen and the amounts they have received.
