As I remember it, the only reference then made was that there had been no report. This motion involves an order for all correspondence in reference to the matter, including reports.

I am informed that the correspondence in question was in fact tabled, as noted in Votes and Proceedings of Thursday, May 25. Possibly I could have a word about it with my hon. friend, to see if in fact the tabling I have mentioned covers what he has in mind.

James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. Gardiner:

Mr. Speaker, the last time this motion was up I asked to have it stand because the hon. member was not here. I have found since that the same information was asked for by the hon. member for Assini-boia (Mr. Argue) on December 3 last and was brought down on March 14. It would cost about $500 to repeat the information, and all the hon. member needs to do is to look at the other record. I am sure the hon. member for Moose Jaw (Mr. Thatcher), of all members of the house, would not wish that I increase the costs of information in my department.
