is a question which I am afraid cannot be answered by the government. We have not any information respecting the trade returns of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland which is not public property and accessible in all quarters. Moreover, the mode of making up those returns differs somewhat from our own ; so I am afraid I will be unable to comply with the request of the hon. gentleman.

During the fiscal year 1900, the quantity of hogs imported from the United States amounted to 183,703 pounds, and in addition 47 swine (in number) for improvement of stock. The quantity of lard imported was 687,958 pounds ; of pork, 5,774,432 pounds, and of bacon and hams, 5,273,434 pounds.

Mr. HENDERSON asked ;

1. How many pounds of butter, cheese, bacon and ham respectively, produce of Canada, were exported to Great Britain in each of the three years 1898, 1899 and 1900; also the value in each case for each of said years?
