Charles Hazlitt Cahan (Secretary of State of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CAHAN:

An arrangement has been
made for the appointment of one official only in the department of the Secretary of State who is to take charge of the translation of foreign languages, that is, languages other than French and English, into French and English as may be required by the several departments of the government. I infer that this question does not relate to that appointment, but in direct reply to the question I would say that suggestions have been made orally and the government is considering the possibility of the organization of a bureau to have charge of translations other than the translation usually made in the different departments by their regular staffs. As no conclusion has been reached and no report is available I am unable to give a more definite answer to this question.
