Mr. CANNON:

The other day I asked the Prime Minister whether the two departments of Customs and Inland Revenue were to be merged, and the Prime Minister replied that in a few days he would give out a statement in regard to the matter. If such is the case, I do not think it is fair for the Government to ask the Opposition to vote this special item before the statement is given. Who is to administer this money? Who is to be responsible to the people? Who is to be responsible to the members of Parliament? We do not know. I do not think -there is any haste or hurry. Why not delay the item until the statement is given? Then we shall be in a better position to judge if the money is put into proper hands.

Mr. CANNON:

Would the minister say if there is a gentleman whose occupation is that of distributing bulls throughout the Dominion? Maybe the minister is not aware of this special niatter, but last year there was quite a discussion in this House on a most interesting subject, that of cattle distributed freely throughout the county of Dorchester, then represented by a minister in Sir Robert Borden's Cabinet. I would be very much interested, as being the successor of this hon. minister and also as residing in the same county, to know the name of the gentleman who made the distribution last year, what was his salary and how many bulls he distributed.
