Hon. C. D. HOWE (Minister of Railways and Canals):
The government will not be represented at the meeting. We have had no notice of such a meeting other than that given by the hon. member in the notice of question he sent across a few minutes ago; and beyond that, so far as we are aware the meeting is entirely unofficial. In reply to the second question, I may say that I know of no communication of recent date between Canada and the United States in the matter of the St. Lawrence waterway.
