Hon. N. A. McLARTY (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to lay on the table order in council 1347, dealing with the appointment of Mr. Justice Archibald as commissioner in respect to the Minto-Chipman district situation in New Brunswick.

I believe the hon. member for Royal (Mr. Brooks), who yesterday asked the question, will find a complete explanation in the order itself as to the circumstances leading up to and the reasons for the appointment. If, however, after he has had the opportunity of perusing the order he desires any further information, I shall be glad to give it.
