Mr. MACKENZIE:

I am not criticizing
my hon. friend in the slightest degree. It so happens that the chairman of the pension commission is absent on other duties this morning, and I was not able to get in touch with him in regard to the details of this case. Every question asked by my hon. friend is now on the records of this parliament, and I can assure him that a reply will be given to every one of them so far as we are able to do so. I think I know the details of this case fairly well, but I would not be prepared to answer the questions specifically at this moment. I can assure my hon. friend, however, of my sympathy and of my readiness to review every single question he has asked and supply him with an answer. If I am absent, my colleague, the hon. member for Rosthern, will supply the answer before parliament prorogues.
