Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):

On its publication the report of the special commissioner appointed under the Combines Investigation Act was referred immediately by us to the attorneys general of Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, to see if they would be prepared to, or wished to, exercise their provincial rights and prosecute. They indicated that inasmuch as several provinces were involved they would prefer to have the dominion government assume the responsibility for the prosecution. Therefore counsel was immediately appointed with instructions to review the report and the evidence and to advise me on the course of action he considered justified. I am now awaiting the advice of counsel.
