Liberal

Mr. HOWE:

This refers to correspondence exchanged between the Department of Munitions and Supply and an agency of the United States government. The correspondence could not be tabled in any event without the consent of the latter department. In any event I do not consider that it is in the public interest to table the correspondence and documents between the two countries concerned.

There is a question on the order paper to-day asked -by the hon. member who is sponsoring the motion, and the answer is given regarding that particular transaction. If the hon. member would like to see the

Munitions and Supply Act-Blackout

correspondence and documents referred to in his motion I shall be glad to let him see them, but I do not think they should be tabled in the house.
