Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):
Mr. Speaker, I think members of the house would be interested in an up-to-date report upon the proceedings between Jeremiah J. Nolan, Hallet and Carey Limited et al, and the Attorney General of Canada and the Canadian WTieat Board. The most succinct statement I might make in that connection is to read a self-explanatory wire which we have just received from our agents, Charles Russell and Company of London. The wire reads as follows:
Nolan appeals allowed.
The reference here is to the attorney general's appeal against the judgment in favour of Mr. Nolan. The wire proceeds:
Orders Supreme Court Canada court appeal court Queen's bench Manitoba in both actions set aside except as to costs. Judgment dismisses action commenced by Nolan and as regards action commenced by board judgment is for board against Nolan for amount moneys remaining in court.
Actions remitted to court appeal and court Queen's bench Manitoba for order payment out to board of moneys in court. Costs proceedings Canada and privy council in accordance with terms granting special leave. Airmailing reasons.
The wire is signed by Charles Russell and Company.
