2. What are the departmental numbers of the surplus declaration forms in each case?

3. On what dates were declarations of surplus motorcycles made?

4. How many of these motorcycles have been disposed of through War Assets Corporation?

5. How many of these motorcycles have been disposed of by sale to ex-servicemen in pursuance with the policy which grants them priority of purchase?

6. In what province or provinces are the remainder of these motorcycles now located?

I also submitted the following questions:

Mr. FRASER:

I shall not read them at present. These questions were returned to me last night with a notation that questions dealing with War Assets cannot be placed on the order paper while the special committee on expenditures and economies is still sitting. I am not a member of that committee and am therefore not permitted to participate in its deliberations. If I am to be blocked in my move to place questions on the order paper on behalf of my constituents, then my rights and privileges as a private member of this house are in my opinion being seriously interfered with. I therefore ask you, Mr. Speaker, to rule that not only I but all members of parliament shall have the right to seek information through the normal channels of the house, and that the questions which I have just read, and the other questions I have here, be permitted to appear on the order paper and be answered in the ordinary way.

Mr. McCANN:

The purpose of this bill is to give legal effect in Canada to the income tax agreement between Canada and the United Kingdom which was signed in London on June 5, 1946. The purpose of the agreement is to

[Mr. Fraser. 1

avoid double taxation in respect of trading profits and dividend, interest and royalty payments flowing between the United Kingdom and Canada. It systematizes taxation imposed on other types of income including salaries, pensions and annuities which might be taxable in both countries. Provision is made for each government to credit its nationals for taxes paid to the other and for the exchange of information.
