Mr. BLAIX@

The Minister of Finance has said that the Canadian Associatel Press will largely control this $15,000 a year, and that any daily newspaper can upon application to the association come in on equal terms and become a member, and being a member will have the right to receive this cable news on the same basis. I would point out to the Minister of Finance that there may be some publishers of daily news-

papers in Canada who would not be in a position to become members of this association. Will the members of the association have the right to fix the fees without confirmation of the government ? In my opinion the fees should be subject to the approval of the Governor in Council.
