CON

Mr. MAYBEE:

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. Does the Postmaster General make recommendations to the Department of Public Works as to where and when post offices should be built?
2. What amount of revenue is required to entitle a locality to a new post office, and is the amount of revenue taken into account in each case, or what is the deciding factor in granting new post offices?
3. In what places has the Postmaster General, during the years 1927, 1928, and 1929, asked the Department of Public Works to construct post offices ?
4. Where and on what grounds was such request refused?
6. No definite information available. In the fiscal year 1929, however, Canada's imports of woollen and worsted yarns from the United Kingdom, under the general and treaty tariffs, were valued at $7,595. Also during the calendar year 1928 the exports of foreign woollen and worsted yarns from the United Kingdom to the British Empire (including Canada) were valued at only $13,690. These statistics seem to indicate that the imports of woollen and worsted yarns from the United Kingdom of mid-European origins are small.
