On the orders of the day:


NAT

Thomas Langton Church

National Government

Mr. T. L. CHURCH (Broadview):

A month ago I asked the Minister of Trade and Commerce if it would be possible to allow the ratepayers to have the forms used in connection

fMr. Perley.]

with the census a couple of days ahead of time, in order that they might fill out the forms themselves. The minister said he would consult his officials in the matter. One of these forms contains 168 questions.

Hon. J. A. MacKINNON (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

The hon. gentleman did ask that question; I promised to consult the officials of the bureau of statistics, and I have done so. They told me that if it did not interfere with the secrecy that must be maintained in taking the census, there should be no practical objection to the change. However, they also told me they were considering whether or not they might have these questions appear in the public press, instead of distributing copies individually. I expected to have an answer before this time, but I will try to get it as soon as possible.

CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY

REPATRIATION OF SECURITIES HELD IN GREAT BRITAIN


On the orders of the day: Mr. JEAN-FRANQOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata): Mr. Speaker, I would ask the government to make at the earliest possible day, if possible to-morrow, a statement as to the purchase by or transfer to this government of Canadian Pacific Railway securities, stocks or bonds, held in England. As the matter has been referred to in the press it is of vital importance that we should know what has been done.

James Lorimer Ilsley (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Liberal

Hon. J. L. ILSLEY (Minister of Finance):

Does the hon. gentleman ask for a statement to-day or to-morrow?

CANADIAN ARMY

USE OF HUTS AND TENTS BY ACTIVE AND RESERVE UNITS


On the orders of the day: Mr. NORMAN J. M. LOCKHART (Lincoln): I should like to direct a brief inquiry to the Minister of National Defence based on two or three letters received to-day. Is it true that the permanent huts or quarters in some of the established camps have been turned over to the four-months trainees, while the regular units that formerly occupied them have been put under canvas some distance away? That is the advice I have received to-day.

James Layton Ralston (Minister of National Defence)

Liberal

Hon. J. L. RALSTON (Minister of National Defence):

I do not know what the local situation may be to which the hon. gentleman has

Succession Duty Act

reference, but I can say that both active and reserve recruits are being trained together in the same camps. I will ascertain whether the situation that he describes does exist.

Norman James Macdonald Lockhart

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. LOCKHART:

Perhaps in fairness to the minister I should be a little more specific. My question is in connection with Petawawa camp. I am informed by letter to-day that permanent troops have been moved twelve miles out and placed under canvas, while the new trainees have been moved into the permanent quarters.
