Liberal

Mr. McILRAITH:

Almost all the information asked for in this lengthy question is provided in the annual report which is tabled in accordance with the statute. That report should be coming forward well within the time provided by law. I suggest that the question be dropped and if there are any parts of the information being sought that are not provided by the annual report, those parts can be put back on the order paper as a question.

Mr. FLEMING:

I suggest that a better method, Mr. Speaker, is to leave the question on the order paper until we see whether the report, when tabled, provides the answer.

Mr. McILRAITH:

I should like to point out, Mr. Speaker, that it is no function of a question, as I understand the rules, to anticipate an annual report provided for by statutes. As the question is now worded it merely anticipates and seeks to obtain information in advance of the report being tabled. The report will be ready within the time provided for by statute.

Mr. FLEMING:

I cannot consent to the withdrawal of this question, Mr. Speaker. The question is not simply in anticipation of the annual report. There is a great deal of information there, if this year's report is like the reports of other years, and it would take a great deal of time to isolate the particular information required. I am asking that this question remain on the order paper.

Mr. McILRAITH:

I am not prepared at the moment, Mr. Speaker, to argue the rules of the house. But I suggest that the question ought never to have been received in its present form. However, if the hon. member for Eglinton desires to let it stand and proceed in that manner, I have no personal objection. It merely seems to me to be rather a waste of money.
