REPORT OF MR. FREDERICK PALMER-PRINTING On the orders of the day:
Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Railways and Canals): The hon. member for St. Lawrenee-St. George (Mr. Cahan), yesterday asked a question with reference to the printing of the Palmer report. I have made inquiries regarding the matter and find that the manuscript, in both English and French, together with the maps, is now in the hands of the King's Printer, and only the delay incidental to the lithographing of the maps will prevent immediate distribution of the report. As nearly as I can ascertain, possibly two weeks will elapse before general distribution can be made.
PEACE RIVER RAILWAY OUTLET On the orders of the day:
Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Railways and Canals): The hon. member for Acadia (Mr. Gardiner) asked me to secure reports and information regarding the work done last year in the Peace River area. A request has been sent to Winnipeg for this information, which will be tabled as soon as it is received. I may say in connection with the same matter that some two years ago there was a report of the engineers acting jointly for the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Canadian National Railways with reference to the Peace River western outlet. The supply of these reports has run out, and in view of the demand we are having a reprint made.
