Mr. F. E. Lennard (Wentworth):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Mines and Resources, arising out of an article which appeared last night in the press. Why are certain personnel of the immigration branch being moved to Toronto and Montreal before Christmas? Why the rush?

Hon. Colin Gibson (Minister of Mines and Resources):

That question was asked the other day, and I think it was then stated by Mr. Speaker that the question should be placed on the order paper. However, the reason is that the immigration branch is opening district offices in central and eastern Canada. That has been announced, and employees were informed some three months ago. While some of them may be required to move before Christmas, it will be advantageous to many of them if they move their families before or during the Christmas

Mr. Howard C. Green (Vancouver-Quadra):

I have a question to ask the Minister of Transport. Perhaps in his absence one of the other ministers would deal with it. A press dispatch today indicates that an agreement is being negotiated with respect to merchant shipping between the United Kingdom and Canada. May we have a statement in that regard?

Major James William Coldwell

Mr. Coldwell:

May I ask a question of the Minister of Justice? Yesterday he tabled a return to a motion for the production of papers moved on November 14. There was another motion, moved on the same day, asking for letters, memoranda and communications from Mr. Donald Gordon or any member of the staff of the wartime prices and trade board to the flour milling industry or any flour milling company authorizing the making or maintenance of price agreements between December 1, 1941 and September 15, 1947, or subsequently. Do I understand there are no communications, and that nothing further is to be tabled?

Mr. Speaker, the hon. member will understand that, up to date, in examining the voluminous files we have not turned up any such written communications from either Mr. Taylor or Mr. Gordon. However, there is still

a very great deal of examining to be done. I was going to speak to my hon. friend about this and suggest to him-I believe he has already agreed in another instance-to remove any reference to other officials of the board-
