Ernest Edward Perley

National Government

Mr. PERLEY:

I think I am quite in order in replying to the statement made by the minister. At the time in question he said it was not possible to separate these amounts, which I said I did not think was a fair statement. Then I had a conference with the minister, during which he read from some notes he had received from the wheat board objecting to this information being given. I took exception to that stand, and said it was not right at all. There is nothing about this that could be misrepresented or wrongfully used in any way. The minister himself put on record the names of these export firms, and I am asking what fees they have been paid since August 1 of last year. I think this house is entitled to the information.
