Motion agreed to.


CANADIAN WHEAT BOARD

AVAILABILITY OF WEEKLY CERTIFIED REPORTS MADE UNDER THE STATUTE


On the orders of the day:


LIB

William Daum Euler (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

Hon. W. D. EULER (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

On March 3 last the leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett) requested that there should be deposited with the clerk of sessional papers the weekly auditors' report of the operations of the wheat board. These reports have now been received from October 12, 1935, to February 24, 1938, and will be so deposited to-day. As each report is received from week to week it also will be deposited. Perhaps I should say that the time might conceivably arise when it would no longer be advisable to follow this practice.

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):

We have an absolute right to see these, and that is why the provision was placed in the bill. I thank the minister for offering this opportunity to inspect the reports without having to move for a lengthy return. I think the fact that he has been able to get copies of the documents in question and deposit them with the clerk of sessional papers will expedite business generally.

I am informed that the gentleman referred to was not engaged by the department in connection with choosing this site. I understand that several sites were inspected and the department itself selected the one deemed to be the best from the point of location, economy and suitability. If I can find any further information, I shall be glad to give it to my hon. friend.

ABSENT CABINET MINISTERS


On the orders of the day:


CON

Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Right Hon. R. B. BENNETT (Leader of the Opposition):

The safety of two of our members is a matter of very grave concern to many members of this house. Their devotion to duty has been such that one of them has been compelled to investigate the air mail route in western Canada while the other has had to observe the terrible inroads of drought and other evils that have overtaken western Canada. I have been asked to inquire as to their safety in this great devotion to public duty that has involved the risk of their welfare and possibly their lives.

On the orders of the day:


SC

Joseph Needham

Mr. JOSEPH NEEDHAM (The Battle-fords) :

I should like to direct to the attention of the responsible minister a telegram which I received a few minutes ago from Wilkie, Saskatchewan. This telegram has reference to radio reception, or shall I say the lack of radio reception, in that vicinity. It reads:

Radio reception here terrible. CFQC Saskatoon entirely shut out by stations KOA and XER. Will you use your influence to have wave-length changed so that situation will be remedied. Surely something can be done to overcome this interference.

F. R. Beggs,

Mayor,

E. H. Dulmage,

President of Board of Trade.
