MOTIONS FOR PAPERS

P.F.A.A. INSPECTORS, THE BATTLEFORDS, SASK.


Motion No. 11-Mr. Campbell (The Bafflefords): For a return showing the names of (a) all persons appointed as P.F.A.A. inspectors, since September 1, 1947; (b) all former P.F.A.A. inspectors re-employed since September 1, 1947, in the constituency of The Battlefords.


CCF

Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Coldwell:

Mr. Speaker, the hon. member for The Battlefords is attending the United Nations and I feel confident there is a typographical error in the date. I should like this motion to stand until I can get in touch with him. I believe I am in a position now to amend the date. It should be 1957 where 1947 appears.
