Robert Laird Borden (Leader of the Official Opposition)
Mr. R. L. BORDEN.
Before the Orders of the Day are called, I would like to ask the government when we may expect the report of the committee appointed to investigate the Treadgold concessions in the Yukon. There is some rumour in the press that instructions have been given to Mr. Justice Britton not to make any report at all. I assume that is inaccurate. At the same time,, it is desirable that the report, if it is to be forthcoming at all during the present session, should be before us at an early date. If I recollect correctly the statement of the Minister of the Interior (Hon. Mr. Sifton) about four or five weeks ago, it was that the report was expected early in July.
