Hon. Mr. REID:

The directors who were appointed by the Government a couple of years ago for the Canadian Northern are still directors of the Canadian Northern, but when we bring the Act respecting the Canadian National Railways into force we shall appoint directors of the Canadian National. As a rule the directors of the Canadian National will be also directors of the subsidiary companies, though it does not necessarily follow that they would be the same. In fact it might not be possible to have them the same in the case of some of the subsidiary companies. You might require American citizens on the directorates of some of the companies in the United States in order to keep them alive.

Hon. Mr. REID:

We have not made any progress with any of these items. However, I have no objection to letting the railway Estimates stand so that we might go on with the labour Estimates.

Hon. Mr. REID:

The United States

Government agreed to pay the different railways it took over a certain amount to meet interest and guarantees. That $5,000,000 is owing by the United States Government to the Grand Trunk Railway, and Mr. Kelley told me there was no question but that when the vote went through at Washington all the railways would be paid the amounts that had been decided on by the United States Government for each railway.
