Right Hon. ARTHUR MEIGHEN (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, in relation

to the government order having to do with the bonusing of a fleet of steamers, I should like to refer the government to some correspondence in 1921 and 1920, at least. There may have been correspondence in previous years, as I think there was, with the British government in relation to the subject, and especially in relation to the shipping committee, and with the shipping committee itself. I would ask that that correspondence be laid on the table, as it can easily be done, I believe, before the government proceeds on Tuesday.

Mr. ROBERT FORKE (Brandon):

At the close of last session it was understood that a bill would be introduced to provide for the transferable vote in single member constituencies. Does the government intend introducing that bill shortly?

Hon. GEORGE P. GRAHAM (Minister of Railways and Canals): A bill of that nature

would be in the hands of the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe), and if my hon. friend will put his question when that minister is present I am sure he will receive a reply.

Mr. GEORGE BLACK (Yukon):

I am

willing to have the matter stand, but it is my intention to move that it be referred to the committee on Mines and Minerals, as was done with a similar bill last session. If that were done it could be considered in detail; and I am inclined to think that the Minister of the Interior would take the same stand.

Order stands.

MOUNTAIN FREIGHT SCALE On the Order:

Resuming the adjourned debate on the proposed resolution of Mr. Kennedy (West Edmonton), That, in the opinion of this House, the mountain freight scale should be abolished in so far as it is reflected in standard mileage rates, class rates and commodity rates.
