Since I entered the chamber I received a voluminous communication. I obviously have not had time to read it. I cannot communicate it to the House until I have read it. When I have read it I shall take what action I deem proper. 1
Is it the intention of the Govern-[Slr George Foster.]
ment to afford an opportunity for a discussion of the resolution moved by the hon. member for West Peterborough (Mr. Burnham) on March 21 last) relating to the difficulties experienced by rural mail carriers and the salaries received by them? The Prime Minister on that occasion asked that the resolution should be withdrawn in order that the Government might consider the matter, and he stated that an opportunity to discuss it would be given at a later date.
Sir GEORG'E FOSTER: When the Estimates of the Post Office Department are under consideration there will be full opportunity of discussing that matter.
