NAT

Gordon Knapman Fraser

National Government

Mr. G. K. FRASER (Peterborough West):

In connection with the statement made by the minister with regard to the collection of taxes at the source, will the minister say just what the Canadian income tax payer is to put on his tax return for 1941, since the tax at present is 27-J per cent, which has been deducted, and it is not likely that refunds will be made for some months to come.

James Layton Ralston (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Mr. RALSTON:

So far as the army is concerned the records concerning attestation papers do not contain information as to racial origin, and hon. members will understand that one would have to go back into the genealogy of an individual in order to ascertain his racial origin, that is whether he is of the Dutch, Scandinavian, Ukrainian, Polish or the many other races that are in this country. The only method by which it could be done-and it would not be at all accurate-would be simply to guess at the person's racial origin from his name, and I do not think that would be a satisfactory way to arrive at a matter of this kind. I can only say that at the present moment the department is not in a position to undertake to procure the information in that rough and ready way.

1. Fresh fruits

2. Citrus fruits and fruits of a class or kind

not grown in Canada
