Mr. THOMAS HAY (Springfield):
I should like to ask a question of the Acting Minister of Railways, regarding a telegram I have received from D. V. Reddin, secretary of the Manitoba branch, of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, reading as follows:
Have wired secretary Board of Railway Commissioners as follows: "Understand revision railway rates on explosives ordered by board, by order 425, dated November 13th, reducing rates, but that they not yet been put into force. Imperative to interest of mining industry, which requires all possible assistance, particularly in west, that these be put in force at once. Why is publication delayed?
Can you do anything to assist ua?
As the northern part of the constituency I have the honour to represent is deeply interested in mining development, I would ask the government if anything can be done regarding putting this order into force.
