Hon. A. B. AYLESWORTH (Minister of Justice).
Mr. Speaker, the resolution which the hon. member (Mr. Monk) has moved is for a return giving certain information as to the number of cases standing for judgment before the Superior Court in Montreal. There would be no objection to the laying of any such information in the possession of the government before the House, but the hon. gentleman must be perfectly aware that no information of this nature is possessed by the government. No returns are made by any of the provincial courts to the Department of Justice or to any other department of the Dominion government in regard to the position of the business that may be standing for consider-' ation.
