Liberal

Hon. Mr. BELAND:

This question could, of course, be readily answered; but there exists in Canada a great divergence of opinion as to the advisability of rendering public the names of all pensioners in this country. Therefore, I would ask the hon. member to put on the Order Paper a Notice of Motion, with a view of ascertaining the sentiment of the House in regard to rendering public the names of pensioners. I am in the hands of the House. The moment the sentiment of the House is expressed, if it be decided that the names shall be made public of all pensioners, dependent or disabled, the question will be answered. In the meantime, if the hon. gentleman is agreeable, 1 would ask that the question be dropped.

Question dropped.
