Hon. IV. S. FIELDING (Minister of Finance).
There is nothing in the British North America Act or in any Act of the parliament of Canada which requires or contemplates the printing of Dominion notes in two languages. The Finance Department has not contemplated the advisability of any departure from the practice which has existed under all governments from the beginning of confederation down to the present time.
