James Lorimer Ilsley (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. ILSLEY:

This opens up the question whether the files of the foreign exchange control board relating to the business of individual exporters should be produced in the house. I have given consideration to this question during the recess, and I am obliged to say that it is not in the public interest that these files should be produced. It will be understood that there is a file relating to the exports of every single exporter in Canada, and if these files were producible in the House of Commons it would divulge the private business transactions of these exporters to other exporters. This is the rule that is followed in the Department of National Revenue in relation to imports, and it is the rule which I shall have to ask the house to follow in relation to exports.

Mr. HOMUTH:

It is rather a serious

situation for the hon. member who asked the question. Might it not be possible for him to see the file personally, in confidence?

Richard Burpee Hanson (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):

Perhaps

the minister has correctly stated the policy 14873-154

that should be adopted, and I can see a great deal of force in the position which he has taken. Certainly neither he nor I would want our private export business to be open to the whole public. On that general theory I do not think there can be any division of opinion. In this particular case, however, there is a little more than that. If t'he minister will be good enough to discuss the matter with the hon. member, a solution may be arrived at to cover the individual case. I am bound to say that I think the minister's position on the general principle is sound; I do not think it could be otherwise.

STRIKE IN STEEL INDUSTRY AT HAMILTON- MANAGEMENT OF PLANT TAKEN OVER BY GOVERNMENT


On the orders of the day:


NAT

Richard Burpee Hanson (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Hon. R. B. HANSON (Leader of the Opposition) :

May I ask the Minister of Munitions or the Minister of Labour to explain to the house and the country just what action has been taken in connection with the situation at the plant of the National Steel Car Corporation at Hamilton, what the probable

Labour Conditions*-Hamilton

result will be, and whether the plant is now in operation. In other words, I would ask one of the ministers-I do not know which of them is the appropriate minister-to give a clear statement of the situation beyond that which has appeared in the public press.
