Yesterday the Prime
Minister said, in answer to a question by the leader of the Opposition, that he presumed there would be considerable correspondence in connection with the applications for these loans, and I think he said it would be laid upon the Table.
Might I ask that that be done? Amongst the papers that have been laid upon the Table there is no correspondence at all in connection with the Canadian Northern Railway, and only one letter, from Mr. Smither-s, in connection with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company. I call my hon. friend's attention to that, and I think my right hon. friend the leader of the Opposition -supposed that the correspondence also would be laid upon the Table.
Subtopic: PROPOSED LOANS.
