Mr. Garson: (Solicitor General of Canada; Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

1. It has not been the practice to reply to a question of this kind unless and until the

commissioner has made a report under the act. This is a practice of long standing which was explained by the previous commissioner, Mr. F. A. McGregor, in his statement to the special committee of the House of Commons on prices on February 16, 1948, as follows:

I hope the committee will not require me to discuss or to give particulars of the cases we are working on or the industries and companies involved. Such a course might result in grave unfairness to those whose conduct is being examined, since some members of the public may be only too ready to conclude, without justification, that investigation necessarily implies guilt. Our practice has been not to disclose information about the inquiries we are making, even the fact that we are making inquiries in a particular industry, until our work is completed and the results are published in the form of a printed report.

No report has been made by the commissioner under the act in respect of the industry mentioned or any part thereof.

2, 3 and 4. Answered by No. 1.
