Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; Minister of Finance and Receiver General; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

With respect to question No. 2, it would be very difficult for this government to secure any information that would be nearly as accurate as that which the hon. gentleman could obtain for himself, being a representative of one of the Montreal constituencies. It is no part of the duties of the government to write letters to various people and ask for information that any hon. gentleman can himself obtain. The question will not be answered, unless there is some other view.
