Hon. Mr. GRAHAM:

In reply to question No. 41, the government has not been
asked to help in the development of the Ottawa river water-powers at Carillon. As I explained the other day, many years ago a lease was given to q company to develop water-power at Carillon. In 1921 that lease was renewed, or rather a new lease was given with very much enlarged powers. At the present time there is before the Department of Railways and Canals an application by a company for a still greater enlargement of the powers given under that lease in 1921, and that is now being considered.
