Hon. C. G. POWER (Minister of Pensions and National Health):

A few days ago I indicated to my hon. friend that to provide the information asked for in one part of his motion, namely, the periods of service in the great war of all persons now receiving pensions, would involve a great deal of labour, so much so that it would be almost impossible to comply with the order of the house. It would

involve looking over 100,000 files. With respect to the remainder of the motion, it is questionable whether a return showing the names and addresses of all persons receiving pensions should be brought down to this house. During the past few years this question has been answered 'both negatively and affirmatively. On a number of occasions the Minister of Pensions and National Health has stated that it was not in the public interest that this information should be furnished. In 1933 a return was moved for which took nearly a year to complete and which was brought down in the house in .1934. I have a report from the officers of the department to the effect that this return took seven months to prepare and cost $7,388.60.
