Mr. DUNNING:

In asking that this question be made an order for return, I point out to the hon. member that, so far as it relates to the new issues each year since 1908, and the proceeds in the markets in which the issues were made, the information asked for can be given. The loss or gain on exchange transactions is not available, as it is impossible to separate exchange on transfers of loan proceeds from other exchange transactions of the government. I also point out that there is a very great deal of work and of expense involved in getting out this information. Perhaps the hon. member might allow it to stand over for to-day and consider whether the information he desires could not be obtained in a less expensive manner.
