Charles Avery Dunning (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Mr. DUNNING:

As I indicated last week, the government requested the Canadian National Railways to supply the accounts as soon as possible, and this preliminary statement merely lacks the certificate; some of the checking is not finished as yet, but I hope by the time the committee gets to work next week the final audited statement will be ready together with the estimates. As my hon. friend has suggested, both these documents are submitted to the committee, and I must confess that I adopted precisely the form of previous years without scrutinizing it at all closely in that regard. The intention certainly is to submit the report as well as the estimates to the special committee.
