TIME REQUIRED FOR ANSWERING QUESTIONS- PROCEDURE IN QUESTIONS PASSED AS ORDERS FOR RETURNS

NAT

Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, before the next order of business is called there are two matters in connection with questions that I did not raise as we went along, but which I believe should be mentioned now.

The first question on to-day's order paper, in which the hon. member for York East (Mr. McGregor) asks the number of prosecutions instituted by the wartime prices and trade board from the district headquarters at Brockville, was placed on the order paper on February 9. Could the Minister of Finance (Mr. Ilsley) expedite the answer? This seems an extraordinarily long period between the time of placing it on the order paper and the answer being given. To-day it was still permitted to stand.

The other question has reference to the question which is No. 27 on to-day's order paper. I should like to know why this question, which is a very simple one, and would take up very little space, should stand as an order for return.

Norman Alexander McLarty (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Hon. N. A. McLARTY (Secretary of State):

Answering the latter part of my hon. friend's question, I would say the only reason the question to which he refers was made an order for return is that it involves two departments, namely, the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Finance through the wartime prices and trade board. Returns will have to be received from each.
