LIB

Stuart Sinclair Garson (Solicitor General of Canada; Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

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.

Mr. Rodney Adamson (York West):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of

National Revenue. I regret that I have not had an opportunity to give him notice of it but he may take it as notice now. Have subscriptions to relief funds for the rehabilitation of persons who have suffered from high water levels of lake Ontario, specifically the fund raised in the municipality of Long Branch, been allowed or disallowed as deductions from income for tax purposes?

Hon. J. J. McCann (Minister of National Revenue):

It is a question of dealing with each application upon its own merits. Those who are interested would have to make application to the department-it is an administrative problem-and an answer would be given in due course. I shall take the hon. gentleman's question as notice and give him a more detailed answer tomorrow.
