This question may be passed as an order for return on the understanding that the information asked for by question No. 1 cannot be available until reports are received from the various agencies of the bank, as the information is not presently available at head office, and that question No. 2 cannot foe answered, as statistics are not kept on this basis.

Mr. POULIOT:

On the point of order; the other day I asked exactly the same question and I was answered by the total amount of

notes. I presume that the Bank of Canada knows what number of bank notes of each denomination are issued and I do not see why there is so much trouble in getting that information.
