Mr. GRAYDON:

The minister tables what he says is an official answer to the question, and indicates that there is further information available to the hon. member. I think we ought to have made clear the difference between an official answer and an answer.

Liberal

Mr. MacKINNON (Edmonton West):

I have spoken at various times on questions of this kind. Censorship regulations rule out the publication of certain trade statistics, and these are in that class. I have no objection to giving the information to the hon. member for his own use, but we cannot start to pick and choose information to be made public in regard to shipping.

Mr. MacKINNON (Edmonton West):

Under the censorship regulations these figures are banned from publication, but where a member of the house desires such information for his own more or less confidential use I see no reason why he should not be given it. In this particular case I have the information here and am ready to give it to the hon. member.
