Mr. T. L. CHURCH (Broadview):

I desire to ask the Acting Prime Minister a question. Will an early opportunity be afforded to discuss the two orders in council referred to by the Minister of Mines and Resources concerning immigration from Europe? I cannot understand why this is handled by order in council when the House of Commons is in session.

There will be an opportunity on the estimates of the Department of Mines and Resources to discuss the action which was taken. I gather that the order in council was passed pursuant to legislation. '

Mr. MacKINNON: (Minister of Trade and Commerce)

Liberal

1. First 1,000 copies received April 12, 1946.

2. It has been the policy to include the constitution and government chapter, which normally carries such material, at intervals only, owing to the limitations on the size of the standard edition of the handbook. This particular chapter appeared last in "Canada 1940", but reprints of that material have been made available to inquirers in intervening years. During war years especially, increased pressure on space and paper shortages were experienced, but limited treatments on external affairs (mainly in the form of statements in the war effort and illustrative matter) have appeared. In special Spanish and Portuguese, editions of the handbook printed in 1945 for distribution abroad, the chapter on constitution and government,

Questions

together with special external affairs material, was included. Plans for "Canada 1947" have in view the inclusion of the constitution and government chapter in revised form.
