I would not say that my hon. friend is not a supporter of public ownership, but I assure him he is making a mistake if he presses for answers to the last questions. I am ready to give him answers to the first two, and have been since the second or third day after they were asked. These answers are:
2. During the period mentioned one car has been added and six retired.
I think the hon. member, on reflection, will realize, not that there is any difficulty in answering the last questions, but that if we do, we open the door to a series of question?
that will become detrimental to the interest of the railway and be of no interest to the public.
