Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

The sale of gold? Of course the sale of gold does not arise under this item. I do not clearly understand my hon. friend's question as relating to the administration of the department. All gold produced in Canada is purchased by the royal mint, and is sold, and the proceeds, less mint charges and a charge for handling, are paid to the producers of the gold. I am not at all clear as to what, beyond that, my hon. friend wishes.
