Mr. MACKENZIE (Vancouver):

With the consent of the house, so far as I am concerned I should like to answer this question orally.

I visited the province of Alberta while on the way to my constituency in British Columbia and on my return therefrom partly on personal and partly on departmental business. My stay in Alberta was for two days, and did not entail any expense whatsoever to the dominion government.

In answer to the second question: "What business was each man there for?" I will say, For the cause of good government, and in the public interest.
