George James McIlraith (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Reconstruction)

Liberal

Mr. McILRAITH:

Mr. Speaker, the motion calls for letters and other correspondence which are very voluminous; and in addition they disclose some matters as to the competitive position in industry. I have spoken to the sponsor of the motion about this, and I understand he is satisfied to have the words "letters and other correspondence" deleted from the motion. Subject to that, there is no objection to the motion passing.

Motion as amended agreed to.

Paul Joseph James Martin (Secretary of State of Canada)

Mr. MARTIN:

This motion would entail a great deal of work; it. would require the services of twenty stenographers working for five months to compile the facts.
