Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

The board

does not make formal findings. All it does is provide the government with information as to the facts governing and the circumstances surrounding. Then the Minister of Finance, with that assistance, arrives at his own decision in the matter.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

I will have to answer my hon. friend in the same way. All that the boat'd gathers in the way of information will be placed at the disposition of the house, but the government is the body that makes the decision, not the tariff board.

Mr. GARDINER:

I regret ,to say that the mover of this resolution unfortunately is away sick, and we have no idea whether or not he would care to press his motion to a vote. Would it be possible to allow the motion to stand?
