John Whitney Pickersgill (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. Pickersgill:

I have made inquiries of all the departments which might have information to comply with this motion, and there is none. I would hope therefore that the hon. gentleman would allow the motion to be dropped. If he prefers to have it passed I am quite prepared to have it pass, and I will make a return saying that there is nothing.

Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport)

Liberal

Mr. Chevrier:

I had understood from the hon. gentleman that if he were to receive certain information in answer to questions that he put on the order paper earlier he would be disposed to withdraw this notice of motion. On December 23 I sent the hon. member a letter which I hoped would answer his questions or at least those that we were in a position to answer in the department at that time. I am just wondering if he has had an opportunity to consider that letter.

Mr. Fulton:

Mr. Speaker, I think perhaps I should express regret to the minister for not having discussed this matter with him earlier today, but I did not have an opportunity to do so. I do recall that there was something along the lines of what he has stated to the house, but I was a little surprised to receive answers to my questions in the form of a letter instead of having them answered so that the record might be available either in Votes and Proceedings or in Hansard. It is that point which I should like to consider before following up this matter any further. Therefore, by leave of the house, I wonder if at this stage I might ask that the motion stand.

Liberal

Right Hon. L. S. St. Laurent (Prime Minister):

We are now passing to what in reality, on a private members' day, constitutes the orders of the day, so I wonder if I might have the unanimous consent of the house to make a short statement about an administrative change in the government.

Louis Stephen St-Laurent (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Mr. St. Laurent:

Since my colleague, Hon. Ralph Campney, was appointed associate defence minister he has found that the discharge of his duties as such has left him very little time to assist the Minister of Justice (Mr. Garson) as Solicitor General. He has asked to be relieved of the responsibilities of the office of Solicitor General. His resignation has been accepted and His Excellency the Governor General has approved the recommendation that Hon. W. Ross Macdonald be appointed Solicitor General and assume the duties of that office in addition to his present duties as member of the government without portfolio and as leader of the government in the Senate. I should like to lay on the table of the house a copy of the appropriate order in council to that effect which was passed yesterday.
